Conservation. Education. Research.
CASABIO is an NGO dedicated to the conservation of the earth's species. Our concept is simple: take photos of organisms you see and using our easy and efficient software, give them a locality. Send them to us by email or on a CD and they will be made available online. Now ANYONE, including yourself, can identify them by comparing them to correctly identified images. These images then form the backbone of conservation, education and research.
We're starting in the Cape Town area to trial our concept, and ensure that each plant species in the area has a face and a place.
If in South Africa, take photos of plants, or help us in the office. If abroad you can help by funding an aspect of our operation. The bottom line is: get involved!!!
It's one way you CAN help protect our natural heritage.
