Eden to Addo
The Eden to Addo is a natural corridor solution with the vision to link three mega-reserves in South Africa to protect and restore the integrity of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. The corridor plans to connect the Garden Route National Park, the Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site, and the Addo Elephant National Park. Fragmentation of landscape is one of the greatest causes of loss of biodiversity, by protecting and restoring natural corridors - entire ecosystems can be preserved.Donate
The main challenge that Eden to Addo currently faces is that it plans to protect 10000 ha of land by the end of 2020. Due to COVID-19 their annual hike has been canceled and requires R200,000.00 to achieve this.
Eden to Addo has achieved a great deal of initial success by negotiating the following Protected Area declarations, adding 50,000 ha of privately owned land to the national conservation estate, through biodiversity stewardship. A significant contribution to the national 20-year target. To restore habitats, mitigating the effects of climate change, and encouraging restoration, we cannot protect species without protecting their habitat.
