A lasting legacy

The Hans Hoheisen Charitable Trust

Our work is to open doors for South African organisations on the frontlines of conservation.

Their work is looking after our country’s natural health. The rewards we reap are for everyone.

What we do

In his last will and testament, Hans Hoheisen bequeathed a large sum to fund the conservation of South Africa's fauna and flora he had grown to love throughout his life. To facilitate the protection, restoration, improved resilience and sustainable use of South Africa’s species and eco-systems, the Hans Hoheisen Charitable Trust provides grants to conservation bodies engaged in physical biodiversity conservation and working in the cross-cutting environmental governance and advocacy, climate change, research and education arenas.
