The Gondwana Conservation Foundation believes that through Community upliftment and conservation awareness multiple conservation programs can be achieved.
The Southern Cape of South Africa has one of the highest unemployment rates in South Africa. Community upliftment programs will create both environmental awareness to the surrounding community and job creation opportunities.
Community Upliftment Key Focus
- Local school upliftment programs
- Community Development through conservation training and commercial enterprise (indigenous tree nurseries, bee pollination, community gardens and wattle eradication)
- Animal welfare and rehabilitation with affiliated organisations

- On Nelson Mandela Day in 2012 and 2013 Gondwana’s team helped to improve the local SPCA facilities. The team helped to build fences for the horse paddocks, mowed the lawns, fixed up the cages and got to spend time with the rescued animals. It is always an amazing day enjoyed by all!
