Let us save our White sharks

When Sara Adreotti (33) embarked on a research task to find out how many white sharks are left in South Africa, she was shocked to realize that they could become an endangered species. Sharks found in the 37 beaches in Kwa Zulu Natal are killed legally in order to the number reduce shark attacks. The barriers currently in place are made nets and hooks which kill instead of keeping them away. Sara has then developed Shark-safe Barrier, which just as the title is a safe barrier that keeps sharks away from humans and does not harm them.

Issues have been surfacing for years, but reached fever pitch last year when the City awarded a permit to the CTMCA’s rivals, the Kaapse Klopse Karnival Assosiasie (KKKA) to host the Tweede Nuwe Jaar parade, at a tender worth R1.8 million. The CTMCA then pulled out its troupes. This time around, the CTMCA says it’s being stonewalled by the City for next year’s street parades. This all comes against the backdrop of last weeks announcement that the City has a new partnership with the KKKA to organise what will now be called the Cape Town Street Parade
