Forest Activists target Brazil Embassy (14/8/2019)
Amidst various world events, including a nuclear explosion in Russia, pro-democratic demonstrations in Hong Kong, an Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the tragic violence, corruption, theft and maladministration in the fledgling Republic of South Africa, an asteroid hurtling on a crash course towards earth and fires in the Arctic, the exploitation of the Amazon and other indigenous forests round the world rank as the worst. The pro-forest activists targeting Brazil's embassies are striving to bring attention to the latter as the forests, the oceans and the millions of life forms dependent on the health of these natural systems cannot protect themselves against the onslaught of mankind and are dependent on humans who are sensitive enough to recognise their plight and to agitate for their preservation. In South Africa's own Garden Route, the devastating fires of last year have revealed a hitherto hidden fact; that the indigenous and afromontane forests which make up the unique eco-system of the region [and which attract many environmentally-conscious tourists here] is being progressively exploited and replaced by low grade pine plantations. The first pleas for a ceasing of all lumbering in the local forests have, predictably, had no meaningful response from the authorities. Visitors from around the world who come to the area because of its legendary status as an area of breathtaking beauty have to overlook the unprecedented forest operations where small NGO's are fighting to replant indigenous trees. Whilst visiting here those aware enough ensure they participate in eco-sensitive tour activities such as hiking and kayaking to avoid contributing further to the demise of the area with excessive carbon footprints. REAL CAPE ADVENTURES cc has been striving to offer travelers the Real Thing here since 1995, the latter meaning participating in nature the natural way. Their one day and two day/one night overnight kayak tours, the CAPE KAYAK CAMINO in Plettenberg Bay is the culmination of twenty-five years of commercial kayaking in the area. To experience the fabled Garden Route the real and natural way, join them on a tour and experience it yourself, before it is all lost. It may be that you will be inspired to agitate for nature too.
