Our Mission Statement

Our primary objective is to manage the ecosystem of Steenbok Nature Reserve for the benefit of all Knysna Residents, and its visitors, to ensure the natural heritage of this area is nurtured and protected for current and future generations.

Part of this mission is to create and maintain a place of enjoyment for all, while recognising and upholding protocols that apply to nature conservation areas. We are committed to establishing plant communities that are found in similar eco-locations along the Garden Route, and protecting the flora and fauna that are indigenous to Leisure Isle and our shore line Salt Marshes.
