Water thieves

Dense growth of invasive alien plants dry out water catchment drops the water levels in rivers and increases fire risk. River banks and surrounding grasslands become erosion-prone, meaning the water that does make it into the river is sediment-laden and of poor quality. The study shows the importance of clearing invasive alien trees catchments. This is not a once-off effort, but needs to be maintained for decades.

Scrubbing our water clean

Wetlands scrub pollutants out of the water through various natural processes, making these systems invaluable allies when dealing with water contaminated by mining processes, industrial effluent, sewage, and agricultural runoff. But even the most robust wetland has a breaking point.

A Cup of Tea

Rooibos tea grows wild in the Fynbos of the Suid Bokkeveld, and small scale tea farmers harvest it for a living. Wild rooibos is more drought and heat tolerant than the kind of rooibos that commercial farmers have been cultivating for 80 years. Wild rooibos may yet be the answer to commercial farming of rooibos tea, and sustaining the associated jobs and downstream economic benefits, in a hotter, drier, climate-altered world. Nature has many such plants we depend on for medicine and agriculture.
