Isimangaliso Wetland

SQF has played a leading role in increasing the size of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park authority (formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park) by facilitating the inclusion of 9000 ha on the western shores of the lake, into the park.

In addition the consortium has supported moving the boundary fence of the park to include a sizeable portion of its plantations, allowing for better management and freer movement of animals and increasing the park by 15, 000 ha. Some 120 elephants have already been released into this section of the park. This is world first commercial plantation forestry and a World Heritage Site.
