Since 2010, we have led the effort to permanently protect the upper reaches of the Marico River.
Marico Protected Environment was declared in terms of the Protected Areas Act of 2003. We have since been able to expand to the broader Dolomitic Aquifer System of the North West Province of South Africa.
This culminated into the designation of the Marico Biosphere Reserve on 25 July 2018 by UNESCO’s ‘Man and the Biosphere’ management.
By harnessing the underlying environmental, human and economic potential of the area, we create, communicate and deliver sustainable integrated value to our designated natural environment, focus groups, and society at large.
