The Greater Cederberg Biodiversity Corridor


The Greater Cederberg Biodiversity Corridor planning domain is an area of approximately 1,8 million hectares in size. It extends from Niewoudtville in the north, to Groot-Winterhoek in the south, and Eland’s Bay in the west to Tanqua Karoo National Park in the east. The principal goal of corridor planning is to maintain or restore connectivity across the landscape. Achieving this goal of the GCBC requires stimulating the creation of additional protected areas through voluntary stewardship agreements in the form of conservation areas, biodiversity agreements and contract nature reserves. The introduction of more benign land-use strategies and the restoration of degraded lands in key sites are also important in achieving the GCBC’s goal.
