Vergelegen is situated in one of the richest floral regions of the world and has, in 2004, started a 10 year alien clearing programme to restore 2000 ha of farm land to a pristine example of the Cape’s natural flora and fauna. The entire operation will cost approximately R14 million and is considered the biggest private project of its kind in South Africa.
The programme is part of an ambitious, multi-dimensional conservation project on Vergelegen. It is geared towards combating alien and invasive plant infestation and nurturing the return of natural vegetation, wetlands, birds and animals. 140 ha of this land is Renosterveld of which only 4% is remained in South Africa due to unsustainable farming.
Worker training, job creation, scientific research and learner education are all part of this ambitious project.
The biodiversity project is headed by Gerald Wright, an independent conservationist who is sharing his great expertise for the benefit of the programme and in so doing, the future of the community.
