Thomas Chalmers Robertson


Thomas Chalmers Robertson

Dr. Thomas Chalmers Robertson was an author, ecologist and conservationist from South Africa.[1] He was also a war correspondent, and Jan Smuts’s anti-Nazi propagandist during World War II.[2] He was driven by three things: his mission to save the soil (and grasses of Southern Africa), his insatiable quest for knowledge (being regarded by some as a genius), and his equally insatiable hedonism.[3]

The T.C.Robertson Nature Reserve situated on the outskirts of the town of Scottburgh, KwaZulu-Natal is named after him,[1][3] and he played a role in the development of Ilanda Wilds (a nature reserve in Amanzimtoti to the north of Scottburgh).[4]
