St Lucia Reduced to a Brackish Pond

St Lucia Estuary
iSimangaliso Westland Park

The status has now officially been changed from Marine system to Brackish system.

More than just hippos and crocs: The hidden biodiversity of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park

Science Codex

The St Lucia lake itself is generally brackish and is located on a large sandy expanse known as the Maputaland coastal plain. Dotted across the ...

How long is purgery a Crime?

In 2001 BACSA lost the court case to drive on St Lucia beaches because of a very rare and endangered Crab that exist in the area as above.

Today The iSimangaliso Wetland Park Authority has no problem in turning this into a construction site for the next 11/to 15 years.

One wonder what is the greater good of carrying a World Heritage Site Status if the rights of the public are for ever restricted and the once beautiful St Lucia Estuary has been destroyed.

Bring back controlled beach driving. It is even allowed on Fraser Island World Heritage Site.

Stop The Trawlers

Green Heritage
iSimangaliso World Heritage
Wetlands Park

15 Years into World Heritage Status and a total collapse of the prawn population on the Tugela Shelve brought the Prawn netting Industry to a stand still.

In this time the oceans of iSimangaliso Wetlands Park had a chance to spawn bait fish. This brought back species that was long been eradicated because of the by catches of Netting Trawlers.

We can now proof to scientists and wanna be Paul Watson's that the Rock and Surf Angler can not impact on Species that migrate and reside on our local reefs.

Habitat destruction is the main cause of specie lost around the world. The new developments planned by the current management system yields a greater specie eradication than Rock and Surf Anglers.

Hard surface development is the number one reason for specie extinction around the world. Just because one is passionate about nature does not mean you are educated in conservation. It only means you have the ability to care.
