• Leopard & Predator Project - Saving predators and securing biodiversity within agricultural and protected land of South Africa: It is a human-wildlife conflict mitigation programme that uses the leopard as its ecological “poster boy” in the campaign to conserve ecosystems on productive agricultural landscapes.
• Fair Game - Wildlife Friendly Products: This project flows from the Leopard and Predator project and encompasses the development of a wildlife-friendly produce brand leading to payment for ecosystem services as a tool in conservation and local economic development.
• Tsitsa Falls Adventure Tourism and Agriculture: This project is an anchor adventure tourism attraction and agriculture (hazelnut and cash crops) project in the Maclear in the Eastern Cape. The project seeks to be a catalyst for local economic development through conservation friendly tourism and agricultural activities that will be a model for sustainable development.
• Solar Solutions: This project proposes a new application of existing technologies to provide a solution to South Africa’s energy needs. This is a local economic development project targeting low income/unemployed households that give them access to energy and carbon markets, while contributing to renewable energy development and water saving efforts.
• Alien DIY Insulation Board Project: With innovative new technology, waste from alien plant eradication will produce insulation boards in housing for the poor.
• Landmark Wetlands: Landmark Foundation is developing several biodiversity restoration projects in key wetland areas in the Southern Cape.
