Hunt for alien vegetation

Under the guidance of nature conservation students from CPUT, Daniel Jones and Darren Nyland (past pupil of Camps Bay Schools), Grade 7s from Camps Bay Primary School went on a mission to rid the sides of the primary school’s sports field of invasive alien vegetation. Daniel and Darren did a short presentation to the Grade 7s, showing them the differences between indigenous and alien vegetation and the reasons why the invasive species need to be removed – one reason being, that they suck up nearly a third of South Africa’s water supply. The pupils tackled the task with great gusto and thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on experience.
