Cape Nature Conservation

Short Description

cape-natureCapeNature is a public institution with the statutory responsibility for biodiversity conservation in the Western Cape. It is governed by the Western Cape Nature Conservation Board Act 15 of 1998 and mandated to: promote and ensure nature conservation; render services and provide facilities for research and training; and generate income.

CapeNature is driven by the vision to establish a successful ‘Conservation Economy’ - embraced by all citizens of the Western Cape and to transform biodiversity conservation into a key component of local economic development in the province. Our own definition of a conservation economy is an economy in which key principles and practices of biodiversity conservation have been fully integrated into all forms and levels of economic activity.
