Conservancy meeting on alien plants next week

2015-11-04 06:00

TOTI Conservancy will be holding a public meeting at the Toti Library Hall on 9 November at 6pm for 6.30pm to alert Amazimtoti residents and property owners about the dangers of invasive alien species in the Durban area.

Government has taken a bold step to involve property owners in helping to identify and remove IAS from their gardens. Alien invading plants are a major threat to our natural biodiversity and need to be promptly removed and destroyed.

The meeting will focus on the new regulations and public responsibility in identifying and removing these species. Government will hold property owners liable for removing all alien plants before selling any property.

Gill Shackleton of Toti Conservancy has done an in-depth study of invasive species and will inform and advise property owners on the procedures and legalities that need to be followed when clearing alien plants.

All residents and interested parties are welcome to attend. - Supplied.
