At Greenpop we believe in celebrating the importance of our local biodiversity. And this February we have dedicated the month to the importance of the Cape Floral Kingdom & fynbos!
The compounding effects of urbanisation on biodiversity as well as the inaccessibility of green spaces and their associated ecosystem services has motivated Greenpop to expand its Urban Greening Programme to include the conservation of fynbos and other indigenous flora in Cape Town.
This city is at the center of the Fynbos Biome which is known for being exceptionally rich in floral biodiversity and exhibiting a high degree of endemism. However, in Cape Town, the biome has become highly fragmented and many unique species – plant and animal alike – are currently critically endangered.
Fynbos for the Future
Greenpop aims to provide green space and environmental education to marginalized communities and create urban biodiversity corridors across Cape Town.
Fynbos for the Future aims to re-green under-greened spaces, increase access to ecosystem services, promote ecological connectivity, and inspire community-level environmental stewardship through the installation of fynbos biodiversity gardens at schools on the Cape Flats.
