Titre : Securing Wetlands and Grasslands in the Southern Drakensberg Foothills of KwaZulu Natal for the Benefit of Wattled Cranes and Associated Biodiversity (South Africa)

Pays /Région : Afrique du Sud

Durée : Jan 2012 - Sep 2015

Présentation
The Endangered Wildlife Trust’s African Crane Conservation Prgramme will use the biodiversity stewardship process, as approved by Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife, to secure and improve the management of key Wattled Crane breeding and foraging areas within the Southern Drakensberg foothills of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN). As flagships for high biodiversity and areas of high irreplaceability, these sites will expand the protected area network in KZN. The grant will result in five sites (or areas) being proclaimed under the Biodiversity Stewardship Programme. This will entail the collection of baseline information on Wattled, Grey Crowned and Blue Cranes, as well as other key species, the completion of management plans, and partnerships with individual landowners. The five sites will be in Bushman’s Nek, Swartberg, Marwaqa Ridge, Franklin, and Cedarville Flats and will total approximately 5,800 hectares.
