Synergy Elderado – Bee-Centric thinking!
This conservancy is 320 hectares of land being nurtured back to pristine indigenous Breede Shale Renosterveld, 10kms from McGregor in the Breede River Valley. It is an exciting location as it forms part of the Critical Biodiversity area of a natural landscape corridor that connects the Riviersonderend Mountains with the Breede River via a network of natural sites and also the Vrolikheid Protected Area (an upland-lowland corridor).
Due to intensive agriculture of lowland areas there are not many of these natural corridors left that form a continuous link all the way from the mountains towards rivers and other important biodiversity areas or landscape features,so it is important to try and keep it intact.
It is against this backdrop that Synergy-Eldorado provides a Safe Haven for honey bees. With our local honey bee farmer, Kobus Vos, we are expanding hive numbers and making a step in meeting our target of 200 000 hectares of honey bee food land!
