This Project was founded in 2000, when a group of local families launched a community initiative with the goal of engaging stakeholders and proactively maintaining the environmental integrity of Nature’s Valley. Nature’s Valley lies on one of the most sought after stretches of South Africa’s coastline and development in the area is occurring at an unprecedented rate. The community has the potential to play a role in ensuring that this development is appropriate and sustainable.

The mission of Nature’s Valley Trust is; “To maintain the long term environmental integrity of Nature’s Valley and surrounds by becoming proactively involved in issues that impact on the future of the area”
