Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative:
About us


The Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative is a landscape initiative. We work with partners across the Agulhas Plain and broader Overberg in the Western Cape of South Africa, using a landscape-level approach to facilitate conservation.

ABI operates as a voluntary association.

So private landowners, government departments, municipalities, non-profit organisations and businesses join as members (there is no cost associated with membership).

These ABI Partners then drive conservation and other action – as a collective – under the four themes of ABI (land-use planning; responsible tourism, environmental education and transitioning to a green economy).

ABI is overseen by a committee, consisting of those involved in the landscape bringing a diverse set of skills to guide the voluntary association. 

They in turn are accountable to the broader stakeholder group – the ABI Partnership.

The coordination unit can be reached on 082 329 0249 or email on info@agulhasbiodiversity.co.za
