On 25 May 2018, a group of ten highly motivated Grade 11 girls, visited the C·I·B and the Department of Botany and Zoology to learn more about women in science.
The month of March was an exciting time for the Iimbovane team, filled with outreach activities, school visits and capacity building. Here below are some of the highlights.
Early April brought about the successful execution of Iimbovane’s first ever water-focused workshop, in Stanford, Western Cape. Seventeen Grade 10 ladies from five Cape town-based schools joined us for a week out in nature - the best classroom.
Last year Iimbovane collaborated with WESSA to produce an issue of the EnviroKids magazine, themed “Understanding alien plants and animals in South Africa”.
Word of mouth took Iimbovane and the Cape Leopard Trust to the beautiful foothills of Tulbagh to visit the Rijk Tulbagh Primary School on their Environmental Day. On the agenda was exploring biodiversity and the threats posed by invasive plants and animals with Iimbovane and raising awareness about Cape leopards with the Cape Leopard Trust.
