  • Strandlopers | DLIST Benguela
    October I have a working computer again after my motherboard packed up That is why I am responding only now By now your meeting of the 7th has passed Do let us know how it turned out It was a privilege to get to know you all a bit at the DLIST initiative We really must work to get it well established so that we can support one another With kindest regards Marie Lou Roux Original Message From Grazia de Beer To General Discussion Sent Wednesday November 01 2006 1 30 PM Subject Re DLIST Discuss Strandlopers Hey Melinda Suzanne get thee on to dlist and friends from the south Yes yes yes Well done all Had some FANTASTIC news today after this letter Port Nolloth Museum addressed to DTEC Director in Kimberley last week Dear Director This is a heartfelt plea to attend to a difficult situation here in the Port Nolloth coastal area We have serious problems with off road vehicles destroying our beaches and dunes pollution dumping and littering crayfish and shellfish poaching illegal fireworks etc Every December and holiday season our local environment that could be such a huge tourism asset and serve as a gateway to the Richtersveld becomes a noisy hell hole fraught with problems and severe ecological damage that we cannot control Often one cannot even get to areas until it is too late in order to assess the damage being done to the coast since these locations are only accessible with bakkies or ORVs like O beep beach and dune area Our Police force although willing to assist currently only have one vehicle available since the other is broken Since other crimes are prevalent during the holiday season environmental affairs often have to take a back seat We have only one DEAT environmental officer based in Port Nolloth to service Groen River to Alexander Bay and all the way to Upington border post This is hundreds of kilometres square The situation is really untenable Our biggest problem is that we do not have enough manpower with authority We also do not have enough signage or bins although we are looking to private companies for partial assistance Currently we are collaborating with DTEC DLIST benguela de Beers Marine and hopefully others to produce an awareness raising coastal pamphlet for the entire Namaqua coastline We have co opted many companies guest houses and individuals to assist us in this venture and feel it will be a step in the right direction Many of us are trying really hard to protect our wonderful natural heritage but to do so effectively we will certainly need a strong helping hand as urgently as possible before the season is upon us We thank you for your consideration and wait eagerly for your reply Signed by the Trustees Well folks after FOUR DAYS the Richtersveld Municipality received a reply to say that because of the concerns voiced in the letter a meeting will be held on 7th November in Springbok between DTEC represented by Regulatory Services and Waste management DEAT represented by MCM NPA represented by Environmental Crimes Prosecutors and a representative from the RVM I was blown away Thank you to the person who suggested taking this letter route you know who you are Hopefully may be permitted to attend with the Mayor More news on COASTAL PAMPHLET FOR NAMAQUA COAST as soon as Marine Week s late celebrations are over and after we have liaised with pamphlet designers donated work via debmarine

10 commandments its 1 10 not a b c Thank you for your Port Nolloth Hospitality with our trip to the Richtersveld I do believe the Petroglyphs of the Richtersveld shall be a major World Heritage Site 2007 is the year to create awareness and debate on our Nama Khoi Kai Heritage We shall let DLIST know of our meeting on the 15th regarding ORV and High Season we believe it shall prove a lively debate Shall keep you posted Suzanne Friends of DLIST Login or register to post comments Re Strandlopers by rbraby nacoma org na 2006 11 01 16 29 The old saying holds great strength Together we stand and divided we fall The time is drawing very close where there is absolutely no doubt about who the villains are on our planet and who actually cares about our continued comfortable existance We certainly will very soon all need to stand up and be counted I think we are all too intimidated by previous governance to open our mouths but as you say Francois shouting in the dark is a wasted opportunity as the reality of democracy becomes completely embraced we can learn to openly challenge corruption greed and insane governance without the fear of brutal reprisals hopefully Original Message From Francois Odendaal mailto francois ecoafrica co za Sent 01 November 2006 01 31 PM To General Discussion Subject Re DLIST Discuss Strandlopers In this thread we have an invitation for interested and affected parties to attend a meeting concerning offroad vehicles presumably to try and curb the damage inflicted to our environment Of course that is important to attend the meeting but what really caught by attention was the first sentence namely a call that people that people must work together that this is where our strength lies Over the last ten years or so I have seen the start

    are dabbling in the dark and should not allow events such as Sarel s race to take place Frank Löhnert CEO Walvis Bay Resorts Pty Ltd Tel 264 64 215500 Fax 264 64 215510 Email ceo wbresorts com na Login or register to post comments Re ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS by seahorse knysna 2007 02 22 22 07 It seems as if everyone is missing a very important point here In a grand gesture the venue at Elands Bay is moved to private land NOTHING CHANGES unless there is an already approved 4x4 track on the farm Quad bikes in these large numbers are bound to make a fairly large dent in the sensitive west coast environment Unless I am mistaken creation of a 4x4 track is still an activity that needs to be assessed through an EIA process whether it is on private land or not Is Mr vd Merwe selling us a dummy I do not have to tell anybody on the west coast how much life there is on seemingly dead dunes Peet Login or register to post comments ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS by bedrock icon co za 2007 01 22 16 15 I think most of us agree that the hoped for compromise situation between nature and ORVs is not really panning out It seems that the adrenalin rush supercedes any environmental concerns More s the pity And as for the double standards bad stuff As for guest house owners I am one of them there is no question that if ecotourism the only type possible or desired around here is to remain sustainable that a firm stance should be taken regards degradation of natural heritage Every single guest house in this area was completely full over the silly quady season and many many non quaders were turned away It would be short sighted to believe that business would be lost In fact we have had some guests that have refused to return unless we get rid of the ORV fireworks noisy factor We should pool our support with the quiet bunch Here s a carrot for the west coast RSA regions Quad bike parks outside mining towns It s not the dunes or the beach but there are some seriously good trenches and hilly parts that have been severely ravaged by mining just outside town Make a deal with the mines most of these areas have not been touched for decades and not rehabilitated either create some good employment opportunities and keep away from the dunes EIAs first and foremost of course That should be de rigeur for most developments anyway These dune rallies should not even be considered in SA It s against the law although we still need this clarity disseminated to the people and law enforcers etc Oh and yes I heard that in Mozambique because of the dispicable damage to beaches and dunes that the quads have been banned outright and that there is a policy of leave your quads at the border post Can anyone confirm this Good luck Namibia I am sure you will get your policies in line and legislation right Hope so Good to know that there are like minded Keep those eyes peeled well done all you very on the ball mense Login or register to post comments Re ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS by kwela intekom co za 2007 01 21 09 02 Thank you for that info Rodney I have forwarded it to John Yeld and the appropriate environmental organizations of Elands Bay I have been informed that they are lobbying hard to get this passed before March so I will keep DList posted It is the double standards that irk us On the one hand being environmentally aware and on the other quietly negotiating quadbike rallies Dounderstand that the dunes of Elands Bay is not very large and is scattered with middens How up to 800 quadbikes are going to utilize the dunes is beyond me Suzanne Friends of DST Login or register to post comments Re ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS by rbraby nacoma org na 2007 01 20 12 20 Interesting that the Namib Desert is mentioned by Sarel van der Merwe as an alternative venue to Elands Bay and that finals are to be held here I wonder who in the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism would grant permission for this without extensive consultations with the people who live in the Namib Windhoek is a long way from the Namib desert SA BIKE has been causing environmental problems here and fuels debate about whether we want them here The Namib is extremely sensitive to uncontrolled or even controlled ORV activity has been found to have negative impacts to soil surfaces apart from the negative aesthetics related to the numerous tracks left behind Namibia cannot afford to lose more of its environmental assets through inappropriate practices it would be contrary to the Millennium Development Goals especially goal number 7 environmental sustainability The central namib has large tracts of already destructed soil surfaces and lichen communities from off road driving and mining we cannot afford to lose more The lichen fields in the central namib are regarded as one of the wonders of our planet Generally the quad bike owners behaved very poorly over the holiday season on the central coast they also left tracks in other sensitive areas elsewhere in Namibia and will need a lot of positive publicity to improve the image they have here Until easily enforceable laws are in place to control quad bike activity we cannot as a nation promote uncontrolled quad biking I personally would not welcome such an event here we have been trying to accommodate quads in certain areas during the holiday season without success in a very friendly manner and been treated with hostility and disrespect in return Signage asking for cooperative behavior has been up since 1998 so its nothing new Even areas clearly demarcated cabled off and well signposted as bird breeding areas were ignored and barriers broken and tracks
