African Legacy is a registered non-profit organisation with a dedicated committee supported by many volunteers and donors all with the same goal in mind. Together we would like to transform as many neglected or derelict areas as possible within our cities into wildlife havens.
The relentless growth of high density housing and office building means we are losing urban tree cover at an unprecedented rate. We cannot stem this flow, but we can create new forest or wildlife gardens. Even the smallest corner can provide an urban haven for wildlife and a green lung for our cities. Every little bit helps!
We started, very modestly, by convincing neighbours to dedicate ever larger portions of their gardens to indigenous trees and more natural, less manicured portions of garden.
We progressed to converting areas of municipal land into communal gardens that provide a natural habitat for wildlife as well as an area where communities can come together to appreciate the gardens.
From here it got trickier as we tried to convince residents to hand over their roadside pavements to us. We are actively seeking new pavements to convert in order to extend our wildlife corridors.
The natural progression from here was to extend into and around city parks. This gives wildlife a chance to find somewhere to rest, breed and feed hopefully unhindered by our modern city.
