Restoring inner city nature

2008-03-04 00:00

THE Inner City Wilderness Programme, which operates in conjunction with the Msunduzi Municipality and various environmental organisations, is initiating an environmental awareness campaign that will involve building developers in caring for the environment.

The Wilderness project is a pilot project that aims to rehabilitate and develop the city centre into an environmentally friendly area. Chairperson of the project, Shirley Gault, said that the concept to involve building developers came after a walk along the Polo Fields land site in Town Bush Valley.

The Wilderness Programme has for the past three months been involved in investigating and observing development. Although Environmental Impact Studies gave development the go-ahead in the area, Gault said they are concerned about the lack of attention given to the vegetative, wetland and animal features in the face of building developments.
