We are an independent biodiversity research centre, with a strong environmental and conservation sense. We are studying reptiles, scorpions and general invertebrates in order to catalouge and conserve biodiversity in the Soutpansberg and Greater Soutpansberg region, Limpopo South Africa.
The Soutpansberg Centre For Biodiversity and Conservation is an independent, not-for-profit research and conservation organization based in the biodiversity rich Soutpansberg range, Limpopo Province, South Africa.
Established in 2014, as a vehicle to catalogue the biodiversity of understudied animals in the region, the Soutpansberg Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation (SCBC) is an on-going an d evolving project. The project’s primary objectives are to find and identify neglected, overlooked and understudied organisms in the Soutpansberg area; generating an inventory of species to assist researchers, conservationists, landowners and interested members of the public in understanding the richness of this 'biodiversity hotspot’. Presently the SCBC is focused on reptiles, amphibians and scorpions. Searching for these organisms results in a lot of 'by-catch’ and activities have grown to include: Theraphosidae (baboon spiders) and allies, Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies), Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) and small mammals.
