FRIENDS OF TYGERBERG HILLS ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT OUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT IN THE CAPE.
Our Friends group was founded end of November 2002 starting with 15 members.
On the 29th of August 2005 we were registered as a Non-profit organization with the department of social development. We have also received tax exemption from SARS.
We work for the conservation of the nature reserve. We also encourage greater public awareness of the value of the areas for the benefit of present and future generations.
The Tygerberg Hills are part of our natural heritage and home to a wide variety of plants, animals and birds. The main aim of the Friends group is to support and assist the local authorities by volunteering time and effort to assist in the maintenance of this natural asset. All the Friends activities are done in partnership with the local nature conservation officer.
We are affiliated to Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa, registered with City of Cape Town to participate in the newly established ward forums, represented on the Advisory board of Tygerberg , Durbanville , Blaauwberg , Rietvlei , Bothasig and Bracken nature reserves.
