Youngsters to check out Cape Town nature reserves?

Those who go along to one of three City of Cape Town nature reserves can learn about the importance of the environment.

A specially designed scheme will be running from June 27th to July 15th at the Blaauwberg Nature Reserve, Milnerton Racecourse Nature Reserve and Rietvlei Wetland Reserve and may interest those on South Africa holidays.

The programme is being coordinated by the city's environmental resource management department and will be offering an entertaining and fun look at the areas.

Educational walks, tutorials about creatures that inhabit the reserves and a treasure hunt are among the activities.

The organiser of the event noted that it seeks to reveal the "unique and irreplaceable biodiversity" that can be found in Cape Town.

Attendees will get the chance to improve their fishing skills, while the importance of recycling will also be relayed to them.

It comes after Cape Town Tourism revealed that one year on from the World Cup, holiday makers are vital to the economy.
