BONGA BAGZ

BONGA BAGZ

Upcycled Bonga Bagz is made from of converting old or discarded waste materials into something useful like discarded truck tarpaulins, car safety belts and bicycle tubes re decorated with photo images printed on the front panel. Each bag is unique and can be admired and purchased at their stall inside the Eco Marine Tent. They are useful, beautiful and more desireable than the original products which would have otherwise ended up as waste and a burden to our environment.

BotSoc ( Hermanus Botanical Society)

The plants of the Hermanus coast are very different from those on the mountain slopes above. And the plants you find along the Cliff Path, from the New Harbour to Grotto Beach, vary as the coastline changes. . How do they manage to survive under very challenging conditions?
Come and visit the HBS table in the Marine Village. There you will be able to see, hold and examine many different plants in your hands. With the help of magnifying glasses, you can look closely at their amazing structure. And hands-on mini experiments will reveal many clues which will help to uncover the puzzle of life on the edge.

Panthera Africa

Panthera Africa

Panthera Africa welcomes every opportunity to network with people of all ages in order to educate and create awareness about the reality of many captive bred big cat facilities.  By engaging with the public we are afforded the opportunity to share our values, aims and future plans and so, broaden and enlighten people as to what true and ethical conservation is all about.  Through creating awareness we would like to pull in and draw people to our sanctuary so that they can experience first-hand what we stand for. Captive breeding needs to end. As Panthera Africa pursues animal welfare we are proud to offer the following credible services to implement the change we envision and propel; motivational speaking, educational packages for schools, hands on assistance for current breeding facilities wanting to change, animal communication and proactive involvement with human versus animal conflict.  We are all in the position to change our thoughts.

Our motto is ‘In unity there is strength’ – are you on board?
