The Trust was founded in 2001 as the Zeekoevlei Environmental Education Programme. The aim of the programme was to impact the lives of underprivileged children with a life changing environmental experience.
Over the years the demand for the programme grew and the scope widened.
In 2007 the name of the Trust was changed to The Cape Town Environmental Education Trust.
And then there was !
The New logo depicts man at the centre of the circle of life. It also illustrates the partnerships that exists in nature and those that sustain the Trust.
In the same year the Nature Care Fund was started to manage projects on public and private land not currently part of the City of Cape Town's biodiversity network in partnership with corporate companies, Friends groups and private individuals.
In 2009 we lost a dear friend and colleague Luqmaan Jabaar. He was killed in an accident while doing what he loved, working in Zeekoevlei Nature Reserve.
The management and staff of the Zeekoevlei and Rondevlei Nature reserves started a trust fund in his honour. The Luqmaan Jabaar Memorial Bursary Fund. The aim of the fund is to give one young person with the aptitude to be a conservator the opportunity to complete the three year course in conservation. We will never be able to replace Luqmaan, but with your support we can ensure that his legacy lives on.
