The Cwebe Nature Reserve, on the Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast, is one of the province’s natural attractions.

It will be situated at the Kwelera Nature Reserve, part of the greater East London Coastal Nature Reserve which is overseen by the Eastern Cape Parks authority.Kwelera lies just north of East London, between the coastal towns of Gonubie and Queensbury.The announcement has been met with praise and approval, with the interim CEO of the Eastern Cape Tourism and Parks Agency (ECTPA), Sybert Liebenberg, describing it as “an absolute winner for the province”.While this is the province’s first national botanical garden, it will join nine others already established around the country.They include the Walter Sisulu, west of Johannesburg and famous for its nesting pair of Verreaux’s or black eagles; the stark but beautiful Karoo Desert in the Western Cape; and the world-famous Kirstenbosch on the Cape peninsula, which was the first botanic garden to be devoted to a country’s indigenous flora.The Kwelera reserve is currently managed by the provincial parks authority, but in future will be co-managed by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (Sanbi), which cares for the country’s botanical gardens.Ensuring ecological sustainabilityEnvironmental affairs minister Edna Molewa said in a statement that the botanical garden will be established in two phases.Phase one sees the official proclamation of the existing reserve as the Kwelera National Botanical Garden, while the second phase will involve the expansion of the existing facility onto adjacent land that will be bought during the 2012/2013 financial period.Under the international definition system relating to botanical gardens, Kweleza will be classified as a conservation garden, said Molewa, who has committed to the creation of two new national botanical gardens by 2014.“The role of botanical gardens in the provision and maintenance of ecosystem goods and services, thereby ensuring sustainable livelihoods, cannot be underestimated,” she said.“The establishment of the tenth national botanical garden is a major achievement in reaching the country’s conservation targets, ensuring ecological sustainability.”It is also hoped that Kweleza will boost tourism in the area, and help in educating residents of the region in the importance of conservation.Protecting South Africa’s floral diversityThe establishment of the other botanical garden in the Nelson Mandela metro area’s Port Elizabeth is also in progress. The development will encompass St George’s and Victoria parks in the city, as well as the 80ha Settlers’ Park, and Dodd’s Farm to the west of Settlers in the Baakens River Valley.The 23km-long Baakens River meanders through Port Elizabeth and joins the sea just north of the harbour. It is considered one of the city’s most precious greenbelt areas.At the announcement in 2011, Mandela Bay councillor Noluthando Mapu said that the various parks will have different focus areas. She said that St George’s will focus on plants from around South Africa and Victoria on endangered and vulnerable species.Settlers will be home to plants found naturally in the region and Dodd’s Farm will continue to be a recreation hub, with picnic, cycling and hiking facilities.Visitors will connect to the four areas via an eco-friendly transport system – the use of golf carts has been proposed.The development will create jobs for local people and will also address a number of security concerns, as the botanical garden will be fenced off and patrolled.In 2011 Sanbi, during a presentation in Port Elizabeth, mentioned a figure of R10-billion (US$1.3-billion) a year as the total economic value of the Cape Floristic Region, the world’s smallest but richest floral kingdom and a proclaimed Unesco World Heritage Site.The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is part of this floral treasure, forming its western border. Most of the kingdom is covered with the indigenous vegetation known as fynbos, and of its 9 600 plant species, 70% grow only in this little part of the planet.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The state gets a little wet today with light rain overspreading the region. This morning and early afternoon, the northern part of the state will be most likely to be seeing rain. This afternoon and tonight, the central and southern thirds of the state will see better rain chances. Combined, we see rain totals for the entire event at a few hundredths to .4” with coverage at 70% of the state. Precipitation continues through a large part of tomorrow too, adding its best moisture totals early in the day, with action falling off in the afternoon an evening . It can add another tenth or two, but generally, we look for combined event rain totals to be at a half an inch or less over 90% of the state. We continue to forecast a great start to the weekend with sunshine dominating Saturday. Temps should moderate as well. But our next system remains on track to impact the second half of the weekend, with clouds increasing Saturday night. Rain arrives on Sunday and continues through Monday, even lingering into early Tuesday. Rain totals remain at .25”-.1” with coverage at near 90%. A few areas in southern southern Ohio may end up with better thunderstorms chances or perhaps multiple thunderstorms. That would push a few local areas above an inch of rain, but not many. The map at right shows rain totals from today through next Tuesday midday, which is a combined total of 2 weather systems. Later Tuesday and Wednesday will feature a mix of clouds and sun. We do not expect any well-organized shower action there. But we do see a better threat of rain coming later Wednesday night through Thursday and into early Friday. That system has really shown big signs of development over the past 24 hours and will shift in from NW to SE. Rain totals can be from .25”-1”, and we think there is good potential for some thunderstorm action. We turn out partly sunny on Friday and stay dry with sunshine through early the 14th. The extended period gets active rather quickly. We continue to watch several waves of moisture coming through for the 15th through the 18th. We are leaving rain potential at 1-3 inches for now, with coverage at nearly 100% of the state. We go drier for the 19th and 20th. But model agreement is fleeting, so there is plenty of time for data showing less moisture for the extended period to emerge.
9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Innovative music startup Muxtape has announced that its future lies in HTML5. “I’m done with Flash,” developer Justin Ouellette wrote this morning. Though a much smaller company, Muxtape’s embrace of HTML5 is particularly notable as it happened on the same day that video portal Hulu said it was not going to support the new format any time soon.“HTML5 is great and does not require Steve Jobs’ permission to run a competing music market,” Muxtape wrote on its company blog. “Running in Mobile Safari has other advantages, too,” says Ouellette. “Since it’s privileged by Apple to run in the background, you can listen to music and use pretty much any other app simultaneously. For now this is only possible with HTML5.”“HTML5 is great and does not require Steve Jobs’ permission to run a competing music market.”…”Since it’s privileged by Apple to run in the background, you can listen to music and use pretty much any other app simultaneously. For now this is only possible with HTML5.”Muxtape made its splash as a wonderfully simple music player website for user generated playlists. After a short period of niche popularity, the company announced that it was shutting down due to music copyright pressure. Months later it relaunched as “a platform for bands.”The HTML5/Flash conflict has been watched closely all around the world because of the desirability of multimedia on Apple systems. Hulu, for example, cannot be viewed on the iPad because the company does not support HTML5 yet. Hulu VP of product Eugene Wei wrote this morning that HTML5 isn’t ready for prime-time yet. HTML5 lacks maturity in reporting, advertising and content security, Wei argued. Those are concerns that many companies are liable to share.As an independent and formerly legally questionable music outlet, Muxtape is very different from the mega-corporate premium content channel Hulu. Muxtape has presumably always placed less priority on things like reporting, advertising and content security. A demo HTML5 site has been set up by Muxtape at itllbebetter.com.
