St. Lucia Estuary - Nominated

I want to use this platform to congratulate the hard working people of St. Lucia Estuary, iSimangaliso Wetlands Park, with the South African Tourism Welcome Award Nomination.

a Small community  with dedication  to  protect the  environment  and trade  with  in  the confine's of World Heritage Status.

The Greater St. Lucia Wetlands Park received  World Heritage  status as after a century of dedication to community  development  and  wildlife  protection. 

St. Lucia was proclaimed a Game Reserve in 1895, a RAMSAR site in the 70's and was the first to protect Turtle beaches under George Hughs.

In 1999 the management of the Park was changed and a name change soon followed. The new CEO changed the name to iSimangaliso Wetlands Park and soon started the proceedings of trade marking the area.
