The Western Cape of South Africa has a coastline with enormous biodiversity. Did you know there are 179 defined marine ecosystem types, and 150 of them are found around South Africa? Some of our own species prefer to pillage, rape and destroy, own gain always being the singular priority, and the stretch of ocean has not escaped poaching; Crayfish, Abelone, Alikreukel, mussels, fish and many other creatures are harvested beyond the limits of sustainability and the law. It has become an epidemic, with poor policing and a lack of political will being the biggest problem to resolve this problem. I know of many communities who know exactly where poachers have a base, but mostly no or very action is taken by the authorities!
