The Marataba Community Conservation Foundation (known as MCCF) is a non-profit organization working in the area of Marakele National Park located in the Waterberg region of the Limpopo province in South Africa.

MCCF’s focus within the area has two intertwined channels, aiming to support long term sustainability of the area, its communities and wildlife;

  • Nature conservation in the broadest sense through the support and stimulation of projects in the area which have a direct benefit to nature conservation;
  • Education and development for the communities surrounding the area of Marakele is both needed and necessary to help people in the region. By demonstrating the importance and relevance of nature, our hope is to forge a sustainable relationship between people and nature for years to come;

“What you do to Nature, you do to yourself”

VISION

We support and promote nature conservation and protection using knowledge, experience and education to demonstrate the harmonious relationship which can exist between people and nature; critical to the long-term sustainability for all.

MISSION

  • To showcase a healthy relationship between the communities and nature, allowing people to see not only the benefit of nature but its necessity in life,
  • To stimulating nature protection as part of the daily life of the communities using training, support and guidance,
  • Support partners working in the area to fulfil our vision of a long-term sustainable relationship between nature and people.
