Friends of Tygerberg Hills

Protect Tygerberg. Protect Nature.


Friends of Tygerberg Hills (FOTH) are ordinary people who are concerned about the environment. Founded in November 2002 with only 15 members, we continue to work for the conservation of the Tygerberg Nature Reserve and surrounding hills while encouraging greater public awareness of the value of the area, for the benefit of present and future generations.

Affiliated with The Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA), all the Friends activities are done in partnership with the Tygerberg Nature Reserve’s local conservation officer.

Friends support and assist the local authorities by volunteering time and effort to assist in the maintenance of this natural asset.
