The Blaauwberg Nature Reserve (BBNR) is a unique area of approximately 2 000 ha comprising a rich mosaic of natural, cultural and historical elements. It is within the growth corridor of the City and is therefore placed under extreme pressure from the direct threats of urban development. It is the site of the historic Battle of Blaauwberg (1806), when the British invaded the Dutch-ruled Cape – the biggest ever formal land invasion in the Southern hemisphere.
The Friends of Blaauwberg Conservation Area (FoBCA) aim to conserve, protect and enhance the unique diversity of natural, historical and cultural resources of this area for the sustainable enjoyment and development of present and future generations through education.
