I first learnt about indigenous trees in the area around Gqeberha from the very knowledgeable experts in the Dendrological Society there many years ago, and still love trees and forests. I also have a special interest in the plants and animals of the Great Karoo, an area close to my heart. I am interested in other plants and animals too.
My passion for conserving natural areas finds an outlet in inter alia hacking invasive plants with the Rhodes Memorial / Newlands Forest Hacking Group, and activities of the Newlands Forest Conservation Group. I also assist the Sugarbird Trust as a volunteer, particularly their full-time team removing invasives from Newlands Forest (other teams work in fynbos areas). If you love fynbos or indigenous trees and related species like birds, or biodiversity generally, the Sugarbird Trust is a wonderful, effective NGO to support. Their trustees are not paid anything - all donations go directly to salaries of their hacking teams and other direct costs like equipment and uniforms.
