We appeal to residents not to cut or remove burnt standing trees and fynbos that remain after the controlled burn in Kleinmond last month. Even if YOU think it looks ugly and spoil your sea view.

Attached are three photos taken in Lower Beach Road, Kleinmond on 15 October 2019 where residents cut down the burnt vegetation after the controlled burn. 

“Your actions can be even more devastating to the rehabilitation of the veld than you realise,” she added

This is why:

The lack of old, dying or burnt vegetation is a major cause of biodiversity loss.

Western Cape region is a high fire risk area and fire season is fast approaching. Please take precaution to prevent starting any fires.

The cause of veld fires is largely due to hot summer temperatures, strong winds and human negligence.

We appeal to all residents and visitors to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly.

If you are going to smoke, put your cigarette butts in the trash - not out the car window, not in the gutter, not on the lawn, and not in a stream or the ocean.

Please smokers - use a portable cigarette butt holder available on the market or something as simple as an empty bottle or can laden with a bit of water to dispose of butts.
