Action required

At present there are about 100 wading flamingos in the “lagoon” area along Noordhoek Beach, and it would be good to keep it this way. As well as being a public place, this area is an ecologically sensitive conservation area.

There is a man who seems to want to know no better than let his extremely active pointer-like dog tear up and down the beach while he takes a casual stroll. Meanwhile the uncontrolled dog causes havoc with resident bird populations. He did this last summer and is up to it again. On Friday 5 October the dog ploughed through the flamingo population and they flew away in the direction of Kommetjie. SANParks should consider banning this type of person from the beach.
