Hi, I'm Jodi and I'm from Hermanus.
Donate an indigenous tree and help us in our effort to preserve the unique floral biodiversity of Shaw's Pass.
Shaw’s Pass is a Critical Biodiversity Area that has long been recognized as an important area for biodiversity conservation. It is a core area of floral diversity with an exceptionally high number of endemic plant species.
It encompasses a Nature Reserve established as part of large biodiversity offset for the loss of critically endangered habitats with the upgrading of the R320 road. It protects 4 critically endangered vegetation types and 28 plant species of Conservation Concern, as well as contributing to a biodiversity corridor connecting other areas of important natural habitat.
Located adjacent to this Nature Reserve, the land around our venue serves as a buffer, protecting this critically endangered habitat and its endemic vegetation from the invasion of alien species. We are therefore committed to rehabilitating the environment around us by eliminating all alien species on our property, for the long-term protection and rehabilitation of our natural environment.
To date, we have already removed over 300 alien trees and planted over 100 indigenous trees, but we need many more! Suffering the effects of COVID-19, we are appealing to you to assist us in this effort.
Each donated tree will be matched with a tree from The One. If so requested, your donated tree will be given a name badge with your name of choice.
