#TEP2013 Route 3 – Along the Sea You Later

Dyer Island Conservation Trust, Gansbaai
We managed to fit in a last-minute but very worthwhile meeting with Wilfred and Allison of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust in Gansbaai. The Trust was established in 2006 and clearly carries the passion of everyone involved.

Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative
We visited the Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative (ABI) offices in Bredasdorp and were intrigued to learn about the similarities between some of the objectives of both ABI and The EXPEDITION Project.

#TEP2013 Route 3 – Fun and Games at Isipho, Greater Addo

Playing sports with 100+ children? Really? Some of us definitely felt a bit intimidated by this project visit prospect. Thankfully, as Roger stepped up to bat on the make-shift cricket pitch, Lettie and Lisa were tasked with much less strenuous activities – colouring and reading stories! Read More
