You can make a real difference by helping to record and identify plants and animals. Many species are under threat and the more information we have about them, the better we are able to prevent their total extinction.
You can assist by participating in iSpot.
Friends of Rietvlei has registered with iSpot and we urge members to use this facility to record sightings of interesting animals and plants, as well as learn about wildlife and to assist others in identifications.
