Garden Route Region is included as UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
At a UNESCO meeting held in Paris, France, on 14 June 2017, it was announced that the Garden Route is to be included as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The Garden Route is an area rich in terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems where conservation of the rich biodiversity is ably reconciled with sustainable use practices. The area includes the Tsitsikamma, Goukamma and Robberg Marine protected areas, Wilderness Lake Ramsar site, Garden Route National Park and two components of the Cape Floral Region Protected Areas World Heritage site: the Nelson Bay Cave and the Langkloof Valley. The latter is critically endangered. What a privilege it is for Rundle College and KeNako Academy to be positioned in this beautiful region.
