The Cederberg project is located on Matjiesrivier Nature Reserve (CapeNature) in the Cederberg Conservancy, found inside the Greater Cederberg Biodiversity Corridor. Quinton’s PhD study took place from Algeria in the west to the Doring River in the East. Our southern boundary is Katbakkies in the Bokkeveld while the Pakhuis Pass is our northern most study area. The total size of the study area was 3,000km2.
This World Heritage Site is managed by CapeNature, as well as a number of private land owners in the area too. Our research is conducted on both state and privately-owned land, and we are very grateful for being allowed access to all areas in the Cederberg.
