About WESSA Membership and the WESSA life web portal


WESSA is a membership-supported organisation and, throughout South Africa, our members initiate environmental projects and organise educational events and activities in their local communities. By joining WESSA, you will be helping to provide valuable support for these volunteer initiatives and will be part of a growing environmental network operating at a grassroots community level via our branches, partners, business members, affiliates and friends groups.

WESSA members work to:

Protect and conserve natural habitats and biodiversity
Engage with individuals and communities to enable them to live more sustainably
Create opportunities for social and economic upliftment through environmental education and skills development
Collaborate and network with groups and organisations that have similar objectives
Raise awareness and promote public participation around important environmental issues

WESSA is a Section 21 company registered as an Incorporated Association not for gain.

WESSA life web portal

Phase 1 of the WESSA life web portal is now complete. You can join WESSA, renew your membership or make a donation; books and magazines can also be purchased via our on-line shop. When making a payment via the portal, an account and profile page will be automatically created so that members can update their information and manage their own accounts.

Phases 2 and 3, still in the development phase, include a social media function for members to interact and engage with each other around various issues and interests. In addition, it will be possible to set up groups, projects and events. For this reason, your profile may display some features that reflect this potential but are not yet fully functioning. Your support and patience during this developmental phase is appreciated. We believe our WESSA life portal will introduce many new and exciting possibilities for growing an active and broad-based environmental network. Please join us through these phases of our new journey!
