To preserve the unique biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom
With a mission to protect and preserve the unique biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom (fynbos), the Sugarbird Trust is enabled to currently operate in the Table Mountain National Park to remove Invasive Alien Plants (IAP’s) through management agreements with SANPARKS. An Nbal is the smallest management unit of Table Mountain National Park and TMNP is divided into roughly 1000 of these. The Sugarbird Trust adopts Nbals from SANPARKS for the purpose of clearing IAPs.
As at May 2023, The Sophia Foundation has funded teams of 5-8 people working in Deer Park in the City Bowl (Nbals 406 and 145) and Rhodes Memorial (Nbals 402), giving the fynbos ecosystem a chance to regenerate and thrive in its natural environment.
