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. We are also an approved Public Benefit Organisation.Image: Craig Brown
OUR CURRENT RESTORATION PROJECTS
ALIEN CLEARING NETWORK
We are currently prototyping an action and learning network for local volunteer groups and community organisations involved in invasive clearing within the Cape Floral Kingdom. The network is about sharing information and practices, re-energising and collaborating.

PURCHASE WOOD CHIPS
We produce high quality wood chips from the invasive alien trees that we clear. Pine only (typically for pathways) or a mix of wattles (for mulch or pathways). R600/cube (or R2,500 for a 5 cube truck load). We deliver free to the Greyton area and can arrange delivery further afield.
All proceeds go towards paying the local alien clearing team.
