The remaining natural ridges of Mogale City must be protected and declared as protected areas for sustainable use and enjoyment by the people as natural areas and urban open space.
Please sign this petition to help to convince the Mogale City Council that they should not allow development to destroy the very ridges that create the sense of place and allow wildlife to survive in urban areas. .... visit and like our page www.facebook.com/ProteadalConservationAssociation
