Recent very heavy rains caused a large wash-away at the upper Middle Beach parking area. After each downpour it got worse and was becoming a possible danger to the public. With financial assistance from Ndlambe Municipality Nick Albrightson from Estuary Care has repaired the area. He was assisted by Bobby Seti and a friend of Bobby’s. Thank you to Audrey Barnard for the loan of the bakkie and to Piet Van Rooyen of Cannon Plant & Tool Hire for the loan of all the necessary equipment.
It is a privilege to have an article written especially for Estuary Care by Dr Edward Butler on his research into Salt and the potential effects of climate change in our local estuaries.
