TreadRight Foundation Supports Bushmans

by Kelly Harold

Over 300 conservationists, families and schools recently gathered for the 15th Annual Clanwilliam Cedar Tree Planting Ceremony at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Treat. With the support of the TreadRight Foundation, attendees planted 200 trees in the village of Heuingvlei. 

Local school children also planted cedar seeds in the grounds of the Bushmans Kloof nursery, which will be transplanted back into forests in the future. 

The Clanwilliam Cedar Tree faces endangerment and extinction due to unsustainable exploitation, lack of water and bush fires in the area.

Additional Bushmans Aloof sustainability projects include the protection of Cape Leopard, saving the Cape Mountain Zebra from extinction, conserving the Clanwilliam Yellowish and preserving and protecting over 130 unique rock art sites.
