Pictures talk louder than words. With this simple statement in mind, Korneel Cools and Anne du Plessis set out on a venture to try and capture a part of the essence behind Conservation at Work and why this body exists. With very limited time and budget, this story could only include interviews with a few of the partners of Conservation at Work. There are many more people involved in this project, but we hope this this will give you some insight into the project. Enjoy!

Conservation at Work in collaboration with CapeNature, Jobs 4 Carbon, Table Mountain Fund, Western Cape Department of Agriculture, Landcare, Rooiberg Breede River Conservancy, and VanWyksdorp Development Institute (VDI) hosted a successful Landowners Day investigating the practical implementation of erosion control measures in the field. The Jobs 4 Carbon project launched in 2014 and has a remarkable impact on the lives of the local community creating 60 jobs while restoring degraded veld in the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve by planting spekboom, clearing alien invasive species and preventing soil erosion through ponding. A total of 312702 spekboom plants were planted between 2018-2023 as part of the restoration of degraded spekboom thicket.
