SAVING THE BEACHWOOD MANGROVES

The recent high seas caused severe damage to the beaches and coastal sand dunes in and around the area of the Umgeni River Estuary.

The Beachwood mangroves and the marine wildlife are completely reliant on the intertidal exchange of seawater and nutrients for survival.

The sand dunes were severely disrupted by the high seas and the interconnecting Beachwood mangrove creek has been completely cut off from the river and the ocean and the necessary tidal exchange

The mangroves and wildlife are currently suffering and are in a process of dying.

We are working together with our support network to intervene to reopen and reconnect the Beachwood creek to the mangroves as a matter of extreme urgency to prevent irreversible damage.

This requires heavy earthmoving equipment and specialized management which comes at a heavy cost.

Oceans Alive Conservation Trust is committed to this process and to saving the Beachwood Mangroves and the marine wildlife. ( https://www.oceans-alive.org/savingthebeachwoodmangroves )

We are in the process of deploying the necessary heavy equipment and resources and we have committed to funding the process.

We have no availability of assistance or funding from the government or the municipality or Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.

We humbly request business and the public to support and contribute towards the extensive costs of this critical conservation effort.

We estimate the costs, excluding the goodwill sponsors and partners involved, to be approximately R100 000.

 

This includes the deployment of heavy plant machinery, equipment, transport logistics, personnel, diesel and security services. 

 

This does not include the amount of funding which will be required to rehabilitate the sand dunes which will be the second necessary phase to secure the future of the Beachwood Mangroves.

 

A dedicated Oceans Alive Conservation Trust bank account has been opened specific to support this environmental rescue operation.

 

Subject to qualification, Corporate Social Responsibility donations may be awarded a SARS Section 18A Tax Certificate in South Africa.
