Now in it’s 4th year, the Biodiversity Expo is a conservation community event where each of the organizations participating have realized that we can achieve a greater critical mass to ensure that future generations can enjoy the biodiversity wealth we enjoy today… by working together!

You are invited to join us in celebrating life through this event!

The Conservation Adventure is a new component to the Biodiversity Expo.

Biodiversity Expo 2011 takes place from the 5th -8th May 2011, Kirstenbosch. We have designed the adventure so that each team entering will have a unique conservation adventure in their quest to find the 5 treasures. We would like to encourage families to join in this adventure, but all are welcome.
