The Cape Flats Nature Reserve is a private reserve and falls under the administration of the University of the Western Cape. Although the reserve was first created as a refuge for Strandveld and Coastal Fynbos, it now also functions as a base for ecological teaching,environmental education, research and a natural space for the public to enjoy. the cruise we had at the nature reserve was help full to me because i learnt a lot. i now no that we have a limestone in our nature reserve, a fynbos, thicket, and that the had been fire that once occured in the nature reserve that affected some living organisms. the nature reserve had different kinds of animals that you may find inside at any nature reserve that you may once visited.
