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.
