Rehabilitation Hoax or Fiction

Going Head on with Management

iSimangaliso Wetlands Park


It is now 18 years since we achieved World Heritage Status and 18 years since Andrew Zaloumis abandoned the trailed and tested Dredging Plan that served St Lucia Estuary well from 1948 until 2000. Since proclamation of World Heritage Status there was a steady decline in estuary health and diversity until it was declared dead by Marine Scientists in 2012.

Over the years more in more restrictions was imposed on domestic tourist that build the northern Zulu land region into a thriving tourism hub. First was the mechanical closure of The Estuary Mouth. Then followed the #4x4Ban. Then restriction on Dusky Kob fishing in the Estuary. Then the parking restriction, forced alcohol control points and later even the illegal ban  of bottom fishing from St Lucia Ski Boat launching site.

Cape Vidal gate fees and Rhino card fees shot through the roof. Willing and able Ezemvelo staff was replaced by multi national companies at the expense of permanent jobs. And the list goes on and on and on.

The first Task at hand for iSimangalisoOrg is to gather support to request the removal of soil placed on the public open parking spaces at the highly popular Main and Jabula beaches. It serves no purpose and it is counter productive and restrict day visitors to our lovely golden beaches.

Please add your name to the list of the people supporting the opening of the parking areas as planned by iSimangaliso Wetland Park authority following public participation Meetings.
