It is a travesty that high-level developers should come into this region without so much as an Environmental Impact Assessment, and ruthlessly bull-doze the ecologically sensitive head-waters of this Timbavati river system…First opposing this illegal development, then employing enviro-lawyers to contest it, we now are working on solutions to redress the damage of a brutal scar on landscape which can be seen from outer space.read more
