The Nature’s Valley Trust is a small community driven NPO working at the cutting edge of integrated conservation in South Africa. We operate in four main arenas, namely Conservation, Education, Community and Research. We take a holistic view of people and the environment, and use our four programs to help shape how people live, how they view the world around them, and how they as individuals can contribute to conserving the natural world. Nestled in the magnificent Garden Route, and situated in world renowned Nature’s Valley, we are a passionate group of conservationists that aim to make a practical difference with the work we do.

We believe in partnerships, and we have many of them! As you visit our various program pages, you will notice this theme that runs throughout our work. Why not see how you can partner with us too?

In Support of Conservation
Conservation in Action

The NVT has a reputation for ensuring that development occurring in the area is done ethically, legally, and responsibly. We see ourselves as an organisation that helps protect the long term ecological integrity, beauty and wildness that Nature's Valley is world renowned for.

Ecological Research

At the end of 2011, the NVT board identified a gap in research capacity in the region, and made a bold move to become a major role player in conducting ecological research in the region. Without good quality scientific data, conservation efforts will be like driving in the dark without headlights…

Conservation Education

Our conservation education staff use curriculum based initiatives to reach over 5000 community members each year, making this one of the biggest environmental education initiatives in the Western and Eastern Cape Provinces of South Africa. 

Community Engagement

We partner with several local communities in terms of environmental awareness initiatives, community cleanup events, and community re-greening programs. By resourcing, assisting and educating local communities, we put conservation issues at the forefront of sustainable community development, which is where it should be.
