They’re primordial (existing at or from the beginning of time)
They stand dormant and sentinel (watch over so as to protect) in winter
There is so much life, it’s in the earth, and it’s in the environment and it’s in the animals
Some small experience that is just totally memorable
Without this pristine (in its original condition) wilderness, this place would be a much sadder place
We need to protect it from industrial development
Once we’ve lost this battle, there is nothing left for anybody
“Location – Mapungubwe is set against the northern border of South Africa, joining Zimbabwe and Botswana.
Vanessa Bristow is well acquainted with the traces that ancient life has left behind. She feels that at Mapungubwe there is an overwhelming sense of “enormous history, and evidence of how time has “carved its way” through the landscape.
However, the announcement that authorisation has been given to an Australian company called CoAL to construct an open-cast mine just outside of the boundaries of this conservation area will affect this fragile natural harmony. To Vanessa, without these pristine wilderness areas, “the world would be a much sadder place.”
Vanessa, like many others, believes that Mapungubwe should be preserved and protected from infrastructural development, and allowed to remain pristine for future generations to come, because as she says, “if we lose this battle, there’s nothing left, for anybody.”
