Help us

protect these ancient Fynbos Fish species…


For millions of years, tiny, secretive Fynbos Fish species have lived in the rivers and streams of the Cape Fold Ecoregion.

They swam, free from human-induced threats. But we’ve changed all that. In a few short decades, Fynbos Fish have become some of the MOST THREATENED species globally. 


Most are now swimming on the edge of extinction.

We must act, to turn the tide for these native fish species. And time is NOT on our side.
