Nature Reserve Unit Faunal Survey reveals impressive results
The Nature Reserve Unit Faunal Survey took place in October 2022.

Over 60 participants joined from various institutes, clubs and communities. Familiar and new faces bundu-bashed and scrutinised everything that moved, or that was in flower, over a period of six days.

658 observations were uploaded to i-Naturalist with 217 species recorded. All data collected helps toward updating the reserves species list and recording what is found within the endangered Cape Flats Dune Strandveld and critically endangered Cape Flats Sand Fynbos vegetation types.

Each year new additions are found, but the amount is still surprising... the results of this survey were impressive as 24 species list additions and three photographic additions were added!
