Welcome to Suni-Ridge Org. ZA!
Thank you for visiting our website. Suni-Ridge is a non-profit organisation based in Maputaland (Kwazulu Natal) in South Africa.
The world’s natural eco-systems are being degraded at a unprecedented rate and it is no longer sufficient to merely protect that which is left.
At Suni-Ridge we have lovingly restored a previously degraded agricultural area and have given back to nature, a significant section of the buffer zone of the False Bay environs of World Natural Heritage Site, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, on the North East Coast of South Africa.
One of our most important challenges is to protect the wildlife in/around our reserve, and to prevent poaching. Instead of implementing the Sustainable Use Policy (also see Khola Campaign).
We provide a flourishing habitat to an abundance of wildlife, including rare and protected species, and are reaching out to the local communities to encourage them to take ownership of the responsiblity of protecting this natural heritage.
Young leaders from local communities attend our Young Environmental Ambassador’s Leadership.
Our involvement with local communities also shows them how they can benefit from Eco-tourism and why implementing (or being part of) the Sustainable Use Policy isn’t the right thing to do (see our Khola Campaign).
Please Join Our Efforts
Many people are deeply concerned about the environment and global warming. Some people even contribute to carbon-emission offset programs. Instead, we’re asking you to join our efforts in preserving natural habitat (and bush) and to become part of a sustainable solution for the environmental crisis.
Your support will make a difference to:
- preservation / restoration of indigenous habitat
- ensure the growth of safe havens for wildlife
- help to bring environmental education and awareness to rural communities
