Your signature here will give the 4U2FISH campaign a mandate to take these issues up at all levels where our main focus will be getting top level government officials involved in developing a viable solution that is ecologically, socially and financially feasible.

The loss of biodiversity within Lake St. Lucia and the St. Lucia Estuary is of grave concern,  to many folks as ,the breeding grounds for many fish species, and a major economic driver of the Umkhanyakude tourism industry, as well as an income source for the local population within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

The fact that we are no longer able to generate incomes from the natural renewable resources within the iSimangaliso Wetland park is problematic, especially since there are no other economic opportunities within Umkhanyakude District municipality. There are limited economic development opportunities, and the tourism sector is in dire straits, with very few domestic tourists due to the knock on impacts of the closure of our beaches to reasonable motor vehicle access on 2002 and the subsequent closure of many other tourism destinations within the Greater St. Lucia Wetlands Park by the iSimangaliso Wetland park Authority.
