About Midlands Conservancy Forum

Midlands Conservancy Forum (MCF) is a coalition of conservancies formed to share ideas, knowledge and discuss common challenges.  The KZN Midlands is home to 50 pairs of the less than 250 Wattled Cranes left in South Africa and home to 12 active Conservancies. There can be little doubt then that this area is a hot spot of biodiversity.   South Africa ranks as the 3rd most biologically diverse country in the world. However, 34% of terrestrial ecosystems fall within the vulnerable and critically endangered categories. A decrease in ecosystems’ biodiversity is cause for considerable concern because it leads to a reduction in ecosystem services, such as a reduced capacity to generate clean water.

The KZN Midlands is an important water catchment area, has Eastern Mist-belt forests which are home to the rare Cape Parrot, some of the last moist mist-belt grasslands (which are an important carbon sink), and includes habitats of many endangered species.  Locations include:  Winterskloof, World’s View, Hilton, Howick, Karkloof, Curry’s Post, Balgowan, Dargle, Fort Nottingham, Nottingham Road, Kamberg, Hlatikulu – in KZN Midlands.

We host regular monthly walks in areas not usually accessible to the public – forests, grasslands, wetlands.  We have many speakers, presentations and movies on environmental and conservation issues. We are currently in the process of having 8000ha of land proclaimed under the Biodiversity Stewardship Programme – Nature Reserves officially conserved for biodiversity. Thereafter, we will work on expanding the existing area, adding new areas and creating Biodiversity Corridors.
