BioNet coordinator for the City of Cape Town: Biodiversity Management Branch with a focus on Protected Area Expanion. I'm involved with the ground truthing of indigenous vegetation remnants, conducting habitat condition assessments, identifying rare and threatened species in order to update the City's Biodiversity Network. We can then negotiate with land owners with these priority biodiversity remnants and threatened species with the hope of including these spaces into the City's network of Protected and Conservation Areas.
