About Us

Established in 1966, the Grassland Society of Southern Africa's vision has been to advance rangeland ecology and pasture management in Africa.

The Society, also referred to as the GSSA, is a forum for scientists and practitioners in rangeland ecology and pasture management, which champions the sustainable use of rangelands and pastures for the benefit of people and the environment.

The GSSA has a multidisciplinary base and promotes interaction between environmental practitioners, scientists and students who are affiliated with a wide range of institutions including government, universities, development, agricultural, wildlife and related agencies.
