The Grootvaderbosch Conservancy is currently working in partnership with Working for Water to employ over 130 workers to clear Invasive alien plants. The project achieves social and environmental objectives.
Since October we have completed a large number of training courses that have built the capacity of our work teams. In November, through support from the Western Cape Medical services we completed emergency first aid response training. Conservation at work provided us with generous support to complete health and safety training and herbicide applicator training. In March, the Breede Gouritz Catchment Management Agency assisted us with training 27 chainsaw operators. This training is essential to improve the quality of work and keep our work force safe in the field.
