About This Project
Cape Citizen Science is a project that engages the public in research about plant disease in South Africa. Youth from Kayamandi, enrolled in the Vision Afrika program, would like to participate in the project, but cannot afford to travel to natural areas. We would like to provide these learners with an opportunity to become microbe hunters by covering the costs for a day of learning and sampling at a nearby nature reserve. Such an opportunity could lead to the discovery of a new species!
