    The vast majority of George’s professional life was dedicated to the preservation of South Africa’s stunning and vital biodiversity. While his day job at the South African National Botanical Institute (SANBI) took many iterations during his decades-long tenure, his involvement with the Edith Stephens Nature Reserve stands out as a period of genuine passion and a feeling of making a difference.

    Providing environmental and biodiversity education opportunities for the future generations of South Africa – particularly in lower-income communities – was more than a priority for George; it was a calling. That’s why all funds raised through this page will go toward the environmental education centre at the Edith Stephens Nature Reserve.

        Such a lovely tribute, I remember visiting in 1997 and being shown the gardens he loved so much. Family and friends are in my thoughts x
