Help us protect our Overberg bird species – BY LEARNING ABOUT THEM.

We’re raising funds to support research into little understood Overberg bird species – species facing extreme threats. The research, done with partners, will guide area-wide actions to protect these species.

Get involved, by donating to research projects (every cent helps).

    This support will help us:

    • Assess species population dynamics
    • Determine their habitat of choice
    • Log their food sources and its sustainability
    • Understand breeding habits and threats
    • Develop research based recommendations for their survival
    • And much more.

    The Overberg Crane Group has teamed up with Bionerds to find out more about this enigmatic species in the Agulhas Plain.

    The African Grass Owl population has fallen by 30% across South Africa. Why? And how can we rectify this? 

    In order to answer these questions, research is vital. The OCG is funding this Bionerds research project (with the Fynbos Trust and Bionerds). The aim? To address the lack of knowledge regarding this Vulnerable species, its ecology, population size and conservation threats.
