For the love of an elephant we are linking land, biodiversity and people for the benefit of all life.
The Eden to Addo vision is to link three mega-reserves, the Garden Route National Park, The Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site and the Addo Elephant National Park by means of natural corridors to protect and restore the integrity of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning and foster sustainable livelihoods.
Climate change and rapidly accelerating loss of biodiversity is intrinsically linked. Fragmentation of landscape is the greatest cause of loss of biodiversity. Protecting and restoring natural corridors is the solution.
Under all future climate scenarios, higher frequencies of flooding and drought events are projected, contributing to further fragmentation and loss of species. Eden to Addo has initiated the protection of over 50 000ha of natural corridors thus far with associated management plans to restore habitats, mitigating the effects of climate change and biodiversity loss. There is little to no point in protecting species without protecting their habitat. Read more about our achievements here.
