About

Save Sibaya began as an effort to catalog and conserve the flora and fauna in the Lake Sibaya region and support the local community through ongoing projects. Lake Sibaya, South Africa's largest freshwater lake, is threatened by development, excessive poaching, and reduction of water levels due to regional consumption. Save Sibaya conservation efforts aim to slow the draining of Lake Sibaya and protect the area from further degradation.

The current efforts project are to build a comprehensive database of remaining species, create a Sibaya Visitor Guide, and launch a tourist and community awareness campaign to garner interest in the area. Our hope is that one day soon, sustainable tourism will uplift the community, conserve this precious natural resource, and allow the remaining wildlife to flourish. We welcome volunteers and students of all ages with an interest in conservation.
