Branches are local groups of WESSA members who implement local conservation projects and initiatives. They often raise funds and may also help manage and protect sites of special conservation interest on behalf of local municipalities. Branches promote environmental awareness and education in the community, as well as hold special events and activities for members and the general public in order to encourage active participation in caring for the Earth.
WESSA acknowledges the value of its members, who over the years have passionately volunteered their time and expertise to caring for the Earth. In the process, they have made a significant contribution to protecting and rehabilitating the environment, provided high quality environmental education, and helped to build a sustainable world for current and future generations.
Branches are guided by the mission statement, policies and position statements of WESSA, and play an important role in achieving the aims of the organisation.Locate your nearest Branch
