Cape Town was named the most biodiverse city in the world recently. The diversity would have been even higher if more lowland areas had been spared from development and agriculture. One of the critically endagered lowland areas that was spared is in the centre of the Kenilworth Racecourse. I had the extreme pleasure of visiting it for the first. Anyway, it was bloody trippy. I have lived very near by for 4 years, and my imagination couldn't even conjure up the amazing mesh of plants and ecosystems inside: because there is litterally no equivalent that is still intact. A botanist/ecologists wet dream...(I know crude😑😑).
Pictured is my new favourite protea: Serruria glomerata. Vulnerable due to its distibution on low land areas.
Here's to friends who share great experiences with you...@alexlansdowne
