Inspiring a love for nature

What we offer

Training and education 

Contour Enviro Group runs our environmental education and training through our training academy, called the Contour Training Academy. Our academy is CATHSSETA-accredited (the Culture, Art, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority) as well as LGSETA-accredited (Local Government Sector Education and Training Authority) for conservation skills programmes. Through these accredited programmes, we can support national certificates in field ranger, natural resource guardianship, environmental management and tourism guiding. Our programmes have a strong focus on problem solving, leadership and mentorship.

We also work with numerous schools, mostly in the Western Cape in both urban and rural settings, and reach around 1500 scholars every year, teaching them nature conservation and environmental education programmes that are linked to the national curriculum. We focus in particular on teaching these learners about mountain catchment areas, river monitoring and flora and fauna surveys. We furthermore support hiking and camping programmes for farm children – to inspire them to love the world they live in. 

By working alongside our local farmers in the community, we help you to become environmentally compliant before you export your produce to international markets, making you more attractive to potential retailers and markets. And as part of our support to farmers, we provide non-accredited training to farmworkers – in particular in the fruit sector.

“I joined CEG in 2020 to start a new chapter in my conservation career. CEG has given me the opportunity to use my conservation knowledge and skills in different areas and be part of a winning team. I am able to share my love for nature with a variety of clients from children to adults, communities to farmers, private to government, terrestrial to marine. Ensuring a sustainable environment for all.”

"This past year we abided by Charles Darwin's theory of "Survival of the fittest” law. This law is the ageless law of nature, but I've come to realise that the fittest are rarely the strong. The fittest are those intelligent enough to adapt, accept the inevitable and conform to the unavoidable change of conditions."

Solomon Asiya

"My professional goal is to find a challenging opportunity to contribute to a team-based environment in the field of environmental management and conservation. I believe that being part of the CEG’s team has given me the platform of achieving that and also gave me an opportunity to enhance my technical experience, broaden my knowledge in conservation and natural resource management."
