It was designated by UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) in 2015. The project focuses on the enhancement of ecological functionality of the Gouritz mountain and river corridors in the Langeberg region comprising Riversdale-Herbertsdale-Ruiterbos. The project area also has a Northern extension into the Rooiberg-Gamkaberg mountain regions in the semi-arid Klein Karoo.
Colin Stephenson has been appointed Environmental Photographer for the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve.
Environmental photography deals with documenting landscape, flora and fauna to showcase various aspects of the multifaceted elements that makeup the natural and built environment. Environmental photographers play a significant role in documenting our everyday life, our environment, and the changes in them.
The GCBR’s organisational culture and methods of working are characterised by the principle of enabling and informing others and I the Environmental photography is a very important aspect of this process. Environmental photography is a key tool for raising awareness of important environmental and conservation issues. This photography focuses on the relationship between nature and humans.
More broadly the Environmental photography will also focus on socio economic issues, addressing problems that affect communities within the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve.
