The conservancy

 

The Rooiberg Breede River Conservancy is 13,549 hectares of diverse wild life, bird species and unique veld with stunning views of the Langeberg and Rooiberg mountains. The scenic beauty of the area is one of the key attractions for tourists visiting historical Robertson, just 2 hours from Cape Town.

This area has been identified as one of the top priority areas for conservation by the Succulent Karoo Ecosystem Programme (SKEP), the WWF initiated Lesley Hill Succulent Karoo Trust and the National Protected Area Expansion Strategy.

We need individuals,- young and old-, to take hands again and assure each other that we are committed regarding the conservancy and our intention to secure a safe and beautiful place for the future generations to live and work in.

The Future of Conservation

We have to realise that the focus of conservation has shifted from saving the rhino to saving the planet and subsequently ourselves.
