Our challenge:
Finding answers... For what we should, but don’t know!

Scientific enquiry has produced amazing quantities of knowledge

We know more about the fascinating workings and the fragility of the natural world than ever before. And we use that information as best we can to conserve the world for all its living constituents and their offspring.

Yet there are many gaps to fill!

Great numbers of organisms have never been described, countless mysteries of life elude us, and we comprehend little or nothing of many fundamental environmental processes.

The more gaps are filled, the better we understand natural processes

With a good understanding of natural processes, measures to care for that which must be preserved will improve. And we will be more equipped to restore that which has been broken.

Everything is possible, but only if we look

Monograph on the endemism in the highlands and escarpments of

Angola and Namibia

"This monograph brings together knowledge on plants and animals that live specifically, often only, on the highlands and escarpments of Angola and Namibia. Much of the information is based on specimens and observations collected decades ago by intrepid, mostly self-trained naturalists whose tenacity led them across Africa in search of new ants, birds, euphorbias, grasses andmuch more."
