Invasive Species

Invasive plants and animals pose a threat to the biodiversity of the Rivers of Hout Bay and cost millions of rands to remove.


In Hout Bay, some tributaries have been canalised and storm water runoff is directed into the rivers to the detriment of the rivers’ ecology.


Pollution in our rivers pose a risk to human health and result in loss of biodiversity sensitive to pollution.


Riperian landowners have a responsibility to stay within the law of water usage permitted.
