Project Summary:
This project will provide a biodiversity monitoring scheme that, using ants as an indicator group, not only enables monitoring of diversity through time and space, but also contributes to capacity building and education at the secondary school level. Darwin Initiative support and UK expertise will be used to establish the project in the Western Cape, and then to encourage local partners to continue the project and to expand it to cover a larger region in South Africa using additional funding.
Project Outputs:
1. Biodiversity monitoring programme established & functioning in 10 schools. 2. Trained teachers. 3. Baseline patterns of ant diversity established. 4. Lessons learned & best practice disseminated
