Advancing rangeland ecology and pasture management in Africa

The Grassland Society of Southern Africa (GSSA) is proud to host its 55th Annual Congress in Jeffreys Bay in the beautiful Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Think legendary waves, sunshine, dolphins, aloes, shells, funky shops and restaurants, which is Jeffreys Bay - a fun place to be!

The GSSA is a dynamic and inclusive forum for scientists, students 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.

Members and associates of the GSSA are active in a range of applied fields such as livestock production, wildlife management, nature conservation, water catchment management, rangeland rehabilitation and socio-economic aspects of rangeland management. While the Society has historically had a strong agricultural focus, social and environmental sciences are increasingly represented among its members and outputs.
