About KNYSNA BASIN PROJECT

Scientifically focused

The Knysna Basin Project is fundamentally scientifically focused and we pride ourselves in the standard and quality of our research.

Research facilities

We aim to facilitate and promote research and can provide access to our facilities which include a field station equipped with standard research equipment, a smaller wetlab with direct access to the Knysna estuary and a 4 m, 40 HP research vessel.

Community engagement

We love the estuary and all that it entails and our basic educational aim is to instill the same passion for our environment into those that use the estuary – from far and wide. This aim is achieved by hosting a number of estuarine and marine outings.
