eThekwini 's Biodiversity

Would you like to participate in the City Nature Challenge though not familiar with the natural areas you can explore in eThekwini?
Our aim is for the Challenge to introduce you to the City's natural areas as well as improving the resources and data sets for both visitors and conservation managers.

The city contains several nature reserves, each with their own project.
These include Amanzimtoti Nature Reserve, Burman Bush Nature Reserve, Durban Botanic Gardens, Empisini Nature Reserve, Happy Valley Nature Reserve, Ilanda Wilds Nature Reserve, Ilovo River Picnic Site, Inanda Reserve, Iphithi Nature Reserve, Kraanzkloof Nature Reserve, Kwadabeka Conservancy, Mariannwood Nature Reserve, New Germany Nature Reserve Fauna and Flora, Palmiet Nature Reserve, Paradise Valley Nature Reserve, Pigeon Valley Nature Reserve, Roosfontein Nature Reserve, Seaton Park Nature Reserve, Shongweni Nature Reserve, Silverglen Nature Reserve, Durban, Springside Nature Reserve, Virginia Bush Nature Reserve.
We will be adding operational times, species lists and management plans where possible.

Of course, not all of our biodiversity occurs in nature reserves.
There are urban open spaces, parks, rivers, and of course our own gardens. Why not document the birds, insects and other wildlife in your garden?

We have included most of Durban's natural spaces here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/nature-reserves-and-open-spaces-of-durban
