This looks like an initiative worth supporting:
Artists in Piketberg are joining hands to create awareness of the beautiful and ecologically sensitive Verlorenvlei wetland, a RAMSAR-listed site that runs all the way from the Piketberg mountain range to Elands Bay on the West Coast. This important freshwater source, rich in bird, animal, and plant life (including many rare and threatened species), is in danger of contamination by proposed mining operations upstream in the Moutonshoek Valley.
