The Sugarbird Group's greatest expenditure is labour for the contracted hack teams who work on removing the Invasive Alien Vegetation, we also incur costs for tools and equipment and PPE for the team workers (we supply work clothes, hats, gloves, and boots).


The trustees and management do so voluntarily and do not receive any payment for their services.

What your money buys

The following contributions and equivalent man-hours are examples of what your contribution could enable:


  • R350 per month    = 1 day of hacking each month

  • R1 050 per month = 3 days of hacking each month

  • R1 750 per month = 1 week of hacking each month

  • R7 000 per month = 1 month of full-time hacking, Monday to Friday

Alternatively a R1 000 contribution will allow the team to clear (on average) ±2 650m2 of virgin Alien Infested Fynbos. 

Notable Sponsors


We have raised just over R4 million so far for the 2023/24 financial year. The bulk of our funding has come from 5 Trusts and 4 families, with some regular donations and some ad hoc donations including from Snapscan - this is due to our great signage, thanks to Finn Behnken.
