Scientific Services

CapeNature’s Scientific Services Unit (SSU) provides a professional scientific support service to conservation management in the Western Cape Province.

Members of the SSU are experts in the fields of indigenous freshwater aquatic ecosystems, plants, invertebrates, freshwater fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals to ensure the continuation of our conservation services.

The SSU acts as a hub of biodiversity information and interacts regularly with the public as a result of requests for comments, information and advice on a range of scientific topics, including threatened species, wildlife issues, etc. They liaise with outside academic and non-governmental organizations, represent CapeNature at corporative level, and facilitate the flow of conservation biology information to and from the management division.

For conservation science enquiries, please call 087 087 9262 and ask to speak to Melanie Bebe or email: mbebe@capenature.co.za
