Development over environment, economics over social well-being......concrete cannot provide the vital life-sustaining services of a natural environment, especially within our over-crowded & polluted cities.
Care of the environment is essential for sustainability of life for all.
Good Cause. Natural habitat is being destroyed at will.
There are many other areas suited for a mall than this one in the area. But money talks and nature walks :(
-------------PIC AND PAY get off the vlei and don't come back.
Wetlands are extraordinary ecosystems that are under threat everywhere. They are natural sponges helping to control flooding and clean water for us for free. Humans are behaving like a cancer which will one day destroy the organism of which it is a part.
Potential developers need to stop and seriously rethink they way they obliterate precious natural areas.
As a friendly reminder to all concerned it may prove necessary to use HOSTILE means so PLEASE prepare for the complete and entire FREEDOM of PRINCESS VLEI and many more such important INDIGENE sites....
I'm with you all the way Josie!
To list the reasons why Princess Vlei should be saved will be an arms length. I can remember playing near the vlei as a little girl. We lived on Klip Road. It is quite sad that the ecological importance of the vlei is being disregarded.
