Onrus Vermont Platannas back

Another migration of the African clawed frog (commonly known as the Platanna) from the Vermont Saltpan to the Onrus estuary is underway again.

The platannas are amphibious, and need to get back to water before the sun breaks through the clouds, or else they will most likely die.

To help rescue platannas that might have ended up in your garden, swimming pool or in the road, please keep them in big buckets filled with water before releasing them in the Onrus Lagoon.

Phone the Environmental Management Section of Overstrand Municipality on 028 316 3724 / 028 313 5619 (o/h) or visit their offices on the corner of Molteno and Viljoen Streets in Onrus if anyone needs further assistance. Please mention your street address as well.
