Coastal by-law

Coastal by-law

Guest : Alderman Marian Nieuwoudt
             Sandra Dickson 
              
A proposed City of Cape Town beach by-law has tongues wagging in the Mother City.
The Draft coastal by-law is meant to provide measures to protect coastal areas, manage
access to beaches, regulate public access and discourage anti-social behaviour.
But some civic organisations say it could end up policing particularly poorer
beachgoers.
Among other things, the draft by-law makes it an offence to use “use foul or indecent
language” on the city’s public beaches.
The proposal also regulates the use of beach umbrellas and gazebos over the size of
nine square meters.
Also, beachgoers in areas where an admission fee is charged must produce a receipt of
payment on the request of a city official.
Rate-payer interest groups say certain provisions on protecting the coastal environment
are welcomed.
But they also describe other proposals, where human behaviour will be policed, as
outrageous.

Guest : Genevieve Chisholm

It was a little after midnight. Genevieve Chisholm rubbed her eyes and headed out to
check on the rescued horse. He was severely malnourished. Feeding him meant waking
up every two hours just so that he could keep up his strength. But saving animals is
what Chisholm does. She has 1 260 animals in her care – and the number doesn’t stop
growing.
At Flag Animal Farm, a rescue centre in Durban, creatures from tiny hamsters to
abandoned rabbits are left on Chisholm’s doorstep every day. Often, they’re from
people who no longer want their pets or who’ve neglected them. “We have saved just
over 14 and a half thousand lives,” Chisholm says. Her on-site vet attends to every
animal when they arrive. For any wild creature that comes to the farm, Chisholm works
closely with the Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife to release them. As much as she
can, she chooses not to send a rescue away. “I don’t believe in rehoming,” Chisholm says.
“An animal at Flag Farm is safe for the rest of their lives.”
Despite the large number of creatures under Chisholm’s care, she gives each one a
name and an equal amount of love. “The animals that come here all become part of my
family,” she says. With blind ponies, a three-legged cat, and more than a hundred
bunnies among the cows and goats, she’s created a haven for every type of animal.
“Where there’s breath, there’s hope,” Chisholm says. “And we will fight until the last
breath.”
