Biodiversity at Pinelands High

Posted by on in News

We have recently added some new plants to our Garden of Extinction. This Garden aims to display a selection of rare and threatened lowland fynbos plants which possibly once existed in the school's natural environment. The Garden of Extinction is part of the Biodiversity Garden outside the Life Science classrooms.

Many thanks to BotSoc volunteer Mr Rupert Koopman (an ecologist at CapeNature), who assisted Dr de Roo at the Kirstenbosch Plant Fair in helping to choose the additional plants for the garden.

Among the new plantings are:  

These new plants have also been logged as observations on the iNaturalist platform (as cultivated specimens) as a way to keep track of the biodiversity in our school grounds. We recently started an online project within iNaturalist “Biodiversity of Pinelands High School”. We already have 129 observations with 98 identified species in our grounds (some of which are wild). You can check out this project here:

We hope this project will be a launchpad for exploring biodiversity at the school campus, encouraging sustainable gardening and supporting educational programs.
