Our conservation partners strive to restore, enhance and protect the biodiversity of the ecosystems under our stewardship to ensure they are functioning as close as possible to their natural, undisturbed state.
Biodiversity is the sum of all plant and animal life in a given geographical area, such as a reserve, a country or a continent. Efforts to enhance biodiversity are organised into three clear focus areas: reserve integrity, ecosystem integrity, and external influencers.
To ensure that management decisions are based on the best available information, a comprehensive programme of research and monitoring supports all three of these focus areas.
Securing the environment
In a world where humans are continuously, often destructively, modifying natural habitat to support the growing population, protected wilderness areas are critically important for biodiversity conservation.
Stepping into the reserve
Our conservation teams work to manage the land, the fauna and the flora so that they resemble their original, undisturbed state as closely as possible.
