Environmental Rehabilition - Removing Alien Vegetation

Environmental rehabiliation includes the removal of alien plant species like the Aster family (Chromolaena odarata), Guava trees/Myrtle family (Psidium guajava, which the wild animals love!) and Syringas/Mahogany (Melia azedarach).

The biggest problem with alien vegetation is that it usually chokes the indigenous plants, thereby changing the landscape and habits of the wildlife and birds. Feel free to read up more about these species on the links provided above.

We monitor Suni-Ridge Sand Forest Park regularly. Please help us to preserve the indigenous environment and protect the biodiversity? Thank you.
