“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better, its not.” The Lorax by Dr Seuss
Fortunately for KZN, Penny Rees does care a whole awful lot. Along with her team of committed, passionate and compassionate volunteer River Walkers, she has organised, walked, recorded and now, compiled comprehensive reports on the uMngeni River and three of it’s important tributaries. The reports are all available to download on the DUCT website.
They include all the miniSASS results, all the turbidity tests, all the impacts, all the meth blue tests, all the impacts and a whole lot of ideas on how we can help fix up the mess our rivers are in.
So if you care, even a little, about the health of our Midlands rivers that provide water and sanitation services to millions of people and support some incredible bio-diversity, do read them. We need to pay attention to the little things. Small actions often have a big impact that is not always clear at first. Everyone can contribute. Penny certainly has.

Basic costs of the three tributary walks were funded by N3Toll Concession through the Midlands Conservancies Forum Protecting Ecological Infrastructure Programme.
