Description of Institution: 

Entered Nov 2011. The Hugh Nicholson and Tony Abbott Herbarium is a field based collection of the flora of the Pondoland Center of Endemism (PCE) which, in turn, forms part of the Maputaland-Pondoland-Albany which is one of the 25 global biodiversity hotspot identified by Conservation International. The herbarium is housed in the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve, a protected area managed by the provincial nature conservation agency, Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife, and is staffed by local volunteer Honorary Officers. For continuity, the first point of contact is the Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife District Ecologist for the Central and South portion of the East Region of the Province. From there your correspondence will be directed to the relevant person(s) to deal with your query.
