Rebuild the PCU Cause

The fires that ravaged the University of Cape Town campuses on the 18th of April 2021 caused significant damage to Upper Campus including the HW Pearson (botany/ecology) building/ Level 5, the top level of the building - home to the Plant Conservation Unit (PCU) - was essentially hard hit. This fire caused the complete loss of the PCU offices, the common room and computer lab have been completed gutted, and all contents destroyed by the fire along with collections of irreplaceable photographs and key pollen reference collection resources. This includes the loss of the cabinet that housed their Savanna Pollen Reference collection.
