Cultural Exchange Programme
Over the last three years, many people from all over the world have volunteered their time from three months to three years, helping in all aspects of the biosphere reserve and its vast range of projects.
These volunteers experience many different cultures amongst their own group and the local community. Many keep in contact, remain friends and continue to support the biosphere once they return to their home countries. They become part of the extended Biosphere family.
Once a year, about twenty-five students and teachers come on a three-week CWBR cultural, adventure and biodiversity experience at locations throughout the Western Cape and Biosphere.
The volunteers range from school-leavers to highly qualified researchers. A number have created new projects for the Biosphere.
