We are fighting a lost cause against Global Warming if our World Heritage Sites is Raped for Money. Preservation is not Conservation it is only a fancy word for Rich man's playground.

Phytoplankton: (Wikipedia)


Phytoplankton absorb energy from the Sun and nutrients from the water to produce their own food. In
 the process of 
photosynthesis, phytoplankton release molecular oxygen (O2) into the water. It is estimated that between 50% and
85% of the world's oxygen  is 
produced via phytoplankton photosynthesis.[15][16]
The rest is produced via photosynthesis on land by 
plants.[16] Furthermore,
phytoplankton photosynthesis has controlled the atmospheric 
CO 2/2 balance
 
since the early Precambrian Eon.[17] (See Biological pump.)

Abstract. 
Estuaries are biogeochemical hot spots because they receive large inputs of nutrients and organic carbon from land and oceans to support high rates of metabolism and primary production. We synthesize published rates of annual phytoplankton primary production (APPP) in marine ecosystems influenced by connectivity to land – estuaries, bays, lagoons, fjords and inland seas

Short Story

Self Description
Petrus Viviers
I was basically dyslexic on school and suffered because of reading and writing abilities. This has its advantages because the defect comes with an almost photographic memory. Basically I was one of the condoned students at school and this gave me a below average matric which did not allow much opportunities for higher education. With a drive to be the best at anything it was important to watch videos or listen when people speak. During 1996 and 2000 I was a tour guide in St Lucia.
With the stakes being high in the competition and no formal training I subjected myself to the knowledge of Tourist on my tours. One day a very friendly elderly lady sat me down on the rocks at Cape Vidal and explained to me the building blocks of Carbonated Sand stone Rocks.'
From there the expertise to consider my knowledge us relevant and with these references I intent to make waves.

The point is if a substandard education like mine can see through the bullshit of iSimangaliso Wetland Park Authority ... the question is where is the brains of the people following the unplanned no public participation meetings that has destroyed our fragile ecosystem?


If an Estuary is considered as Earth's most important life sustaining system on earth why does St Lucia Estuary non functional over 16 years while climate change is a concern that keeps World Leaders awake at night.

Dr. Andrew Venter... you should have taken notes the day I was accusing you of cheering for Mammon... I told you it will go down in history books that you single handedly killed all the Mangrove Swamps of St Lucia Estuary. Well here it is. Filed for prosperity.
