As most of the province's biodiversity is in private ownership, CapeNature initiated the Biodiversity Stewardship programme in 2003. This programme facilitates conservation on privately owned land by setting up agreements between the landowners and CapeNature.
CapeNature and landowners work in close cooperation to conserve the phenomenal biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Download the attached document to see some of our current Stewardship Sites.

Conservation at Work is the umbrella body for all conservancies and conservation minded landowners of the Western Cape. Conservation on private land is essential to ensure connectivity of natural areas in our landscape and the conservation of our valuable biodiversity.
Once known as the Western Cape Conservation Stewardship Association (WCCSA), the association recently underwent a process of rebranding which led to the renaming to Conservation at Work (C@W).
Conservation at Work encourages the sharing of conservation knowledge between conservancies and partners. If you have any questions, ideas or would like to get involved with Conservation at Work, please contact Anne at email@example.com or check out their Facebook page or website www.conservationatwork.co.za.
