This project is inspired by a key partner Ingcungcu. Although there are several justifications for the project development and execution, the project major roles can be seen as a) diversification of species b) plant abundance. Diversification of species entails restoring the historical migration routes of Sunbird & Sugarbird to and from Table Mountain. These birds play a major in pollinating Fynbos particularly, Sugar bushes, Proteas, Ericas and bulbs.
This process involves selecting the ‘right’ plant species to plant in priority sites. The right plants herein would mean plants that attract birds. This process is then followed by a routine of bird-monitoring
