The Foundation is managed by a small group of Trustees and has an international membership, with a core of active friends and volunteers across the Karoo.
What do we do?
Operating from Graaff-Reinet and Richmond in the Northern Cape the NKF mission is to research, protect and promote the cultural, historic and natural environment of the Karoo.
Our goals are:
- To promote the expansion of the current 1% of protected areas in the Karoo
- To instigate, participate and support scientific research and projects
- To assist in creating opportunities for the advancement of local people
- To educate people about the Karoo and provide opportunities for direct experience with it.
We deliver our goals through four programmes:
Our logo is the outline of footprint of the Hippopotamus. Hippos used to be abundant in the Seacow or Seekoei river which forms the heartland of our conservation work. Our vision is to see the Hippo fully reinstated as a symbol of the restoration of ecological and cultural balance in the Karoo.
