AFRIFORUM welcomed the arrival of spring by planting 20 indigenous trees at the Suid-Natal Primêre and the hoërskool.

Wessel Pretorius, AfriForum Margate branch chairman, the planting of trees is a symbol of sustainable environmental management and an important heritage for our children.

“Our country is exceptionally rich in biodiversity and it is our responsibility as South Africans to stand together and preserve the creation. Nature belongs to all of us and without a healthy environment, nobody will be able to survive. We need to ensure that our natural resources are preserved and managed in a sustainable manner,” said Pretorius. - Supplied
