WESSA (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) is a dynamic South African environmental NGO with a mission to implement high impact environmental and conservation projects that promote public participation in caring for the Earth.
WESSA has a remarkable history of almost 90 years and a proud track record of enabling individuals and organisations to use natural resources sustainably and effectively, through our strategic partnerships. We are driven by the critical focus areas of our work which include the international eco-labels of Eco-Schools and Blue Flag, environmental training, sustainable energy, and life-supporting eco-systems such as water and biodiversity.
The international Blue Flag programme is celebrating 15 years in SA, and 24 of our top beaches have been recognised for their sustained commitment to marine and coastal conservation through their long-term and participation in the programme. READ MORE
