Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region

The Kruger to Canyons Biosphere (K2C) was established in 2001 as a recognised UNESCO site under the Man and Biosphere Programme. The name Kruger to Canyons stems from the importance and long-term vision of a connected area of natural habitat that links the great escarpment mountains from the Blyde River Canyon in the west with the Greater Kruger National Park (KNP) in the east.

Vision: Partnering to achieve a sustainable future for all life in the K2C Biosphere

The K2C is currently running 11 projects with partners across the region linking sustainable development and biodiversity conservation. Project focuses vary from the expansion of protected areas; other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs); capacity building of environmental monitors in rural communities; environmental awareness; water security; alien invasive plant clearing, agro-ecology and sustainable land management.
