Learning to do Social and Ecological Restoration in the Baviaanskloof Mega-Reserve in South Africa
In a remote wilderness area in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, a very interesting initiative is taking place. A group of diverse stakeholders are working together to restore this area to what is termed a living landscape*. A living landscape has a variety of healthy eco-systems and land-uses and is home to ecological, agricultural and social systems which are managed so that they function sustainably. This ensures that natural and cultural resources are available for future generations.
