When the nominations for the Board of the Magaliesberg Biosphere concluded at the end of 2015, there were no nomination in the stakeholder groups of mining, Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site and that of Land Occupiers.
The appointed Board resolved to re-open the nomination process for these stakeholder groups, and four nominations were received. During October 2016 the Stakeholders in the Magaliesberg Bioshere were invited to vote for the nominee of their choosing.
Two candidates now join the Board of the Magaliesberg Biosphere. The Board congratulated and welcomes Professor Jasper Knight and Ms Tshegofatso Tyira.
