www.coolforests.org.za save the forest of tabel mountain cape town
What many predicted and what many others didn't believe possible.
SANparks, the almighty,- have taken control of pretty much the best parts of our lives in cape town. If you are a nature lover, - that is Table Mountain park. In Cape Town we are disliking them more by the day!
I am a very hard core nature conservationist and I love animals and outdoors and wildlife.
I am not an anti-alien fanatic. We are all well aware that alien invaders have to be stopped and are doing tremendous damage here. But Sanparks is using this whole anti alien thing to turn "clear" table mountain of everything!
They are taking out magnificent old oak and shade trees of non invasive pine that were priceless to outdoor lovers baking in the sun.
ITS ALL ON Coolforests and Parkscape
In summary,- I surprise myself by my new dislike and distrust of SANparks now.
The great outdoors is what I live for. Mountain biking in the mountain and going up into the hills with my dogs and loving it.
Less that 2% of our mountain are forests, plantation forests that are loved by the people of cape town. There are very very few big trees in the cape.
They are clearing the forests. To get rid of aliens. cash in on the loot of the wood. And drown us in FYNBOS. Its got its own beauty. But personally I am a tree person. I like Fynbos, I like all outdoors, - but to have everything Fynbos and no more trees.... very GRIM!
