bullet2 Southern African Water Crisis

P.O.Box 199

Schagen 1207

South Africa



Type:  NGO   

Scope:  national   

Interest in Forestry:  peripheral


Objectives: to Gather Information, we will endeavor to publish as many environment related articles as possible. We will use this technology, and create links to other environmental organizations.

-To Create Public Awareness:  We want to create the awareness that we are part of the environment. The "health" of our people, depends upon the "health" of our environment.  We will inform, as to the state of our diminishing grassland. We will inform as to the state of indigenous, medicinal herbs. We will inform as to the state of aquatic life, insects, reptiles, birds and mammals in our environment. We will inform as to the state of our rivers, the quality, and quantity, of the water

-To Combat Further Destruction: We will mount a campaign to enforce a moratorium on further "afforestation".  We believe no more scarce indigenous grassland should fall victim to the certain death by the establishment of exotic mono culture tree plantations.

Together, To Rehabilitate:  We believe that all involved should work together, to ensure responsible land use. Meaningful change can only occur with the inclusion off all.  We believe in the "minimal land use" concept.  We believe intensive studies should be conducted into less environmentally damaging alternatives to exotic trees, i.e.. Industrial Hemp and Indigenous trees. The results should be made available to the public. did not work send letter,
