Aloe peglerae, endemic to the Magaliesberg

The Magaliesberg mountain is a recognised UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. To maintain the Biosphere status, all the landowners, as well as the MCSA and its members, have to contribute to the ecological conservation of the mountain. The MCSA has had a longstanding policy of combating the alien invasive plants on its properties in the Magaliesberg. These properties are administered by the Magaliesberg and the Johannesburg Sections. There are monthly joint conservation meets on the properties and members are encouraged to take part in these meets as part of their responsibility as members. The meets concentrate mainly on the removal of alien invasive plants, as well as the maintenance of the hiking paths on the properties.

Please refer to our calendar for information on upcoming conservation events.

A friendly request – please don’t post pictures of your trip on social media until you are all home safe. We also request that do not post any pictures of any endangered animals or plant species on social media.

For more information please contact our Conservation Representative on conservation@mag.mcsa.org.za.
