Wild Restoration is a non-profit focused on alien clearing, rewilding, biodiversity restoration, and creating opportunities for people to reconnect with nature. The approach is driven by volunteer efforts, partnerships and supporting local livelihoods. The initial geographical focus is the Overberg in the Western Cape, but we intend to support restoration in other locations in time.

WILD 5 PEAKS RUN

We are busy exploring a trail run connecting the five peaks surrounding Greyton: Perdekop, Skilpad, Galgeberg, Wa en Osse and Uitkyk. 42km and 3,500m of climbing. This will help maintain and restore the beautiful fynbos in the surrounding area. This race will only be possible if it can be done in the most ecologically sensitive way.
