An ambitious and collaborative effort to Conserve the Cape's most threatened freshwater fishes and rivers
The Cape Critical Rivers initiative (CCR) was born out of need for decisive and effective freshwater conservation action in South Africa’s Cape Floristic Region Biodiversity Hotspot. The initiative represents a collaborative effort between the Freshwater Research Centre, Endangered Wildlife Trust, Fishwater Films CapeNature and the Northern Cape Department of Agriculture, Environmental Affairs, Rural Development and Land Reform (DAERL) to conserve the Cape’s most threatened river fishes and ecosystems. Our approach is to work closely with land owners and seek innovative solutions to the challenge of balancing water for people and biodiversity in this water-scarce corner of Africa.
