St Francis Bay the solution

iSimangaliso Wetlands Park

Since their is working models to base the management of St Lucia Estuary on. The fact that iSimangaliso Wetlands Park Authority has declared their intention in 2005 to trademark their product and their request to transfer the property rights from South Africa Government into the name of iSimangaliso Wetlands Park Authority begs the question what is the intention of miss management of the St Lucia Estuary Mouth.

Clearly it is no brain surgery on how to manage the system, why it is made such a big deal one looks at the banning of 4x4"s from St Lucia beaches and the allowance of 4x4's vehicle on Sodwana Beaches under the same management and Integrated Management Plan compounded with the one sided implementation of Park Rule 06/2014, which over rides The Marine and Coastal Living Resources Act one wonders if it is far fetched if The once great Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park is about to loose World Heritage Status.

It seems that management is moving into a scenario where Laws/Rules only benefit the role players?
