In the face of a developing economy, Government has recognised the need for a renewed approach towards Water Quality Management as critical if water is to be managed sustainably. A policy, strategy and implementation actions is developed that is pragmatic, implementable and appropriate to the future institutional and governance landscape.
On the western slopes of the Magaliesberg, just outside Rustenburg is the Tlholego Eco-village and Learning Centre. The centre has been at it for over 25 years, and was the first learning centre in South Africa to offer training in Permaculture and ecologically sound land management practices.
Cape Vulture are in crisis. These magnificent birds of the Magaliesberg struggle to survive, for multiple reasons. Problems such as pylon injuries, malicious poisonings, muti killings and insufficient food source all contribute. In an effort to decrease the continual loss of birds, various conservation programmes exist. One such effort is the rehabilitation of injured, grounded and disabled vultures.
