Bome met wit gesplete stamme
staan kaal en skree in ’n leë blou hemel,
gegrond en geanker aan hierdie dorre gruis
waar duiwels ondergronds wemel

Steven Steyn

Do we care enough? Is this climate change?
My daily visits to inspect fence lines, visiting water cribs, and searching for poacher’s snares, force me to see signs like this everyday. Huge trees just dying and land once covered with grassland turns to red barren soil. Rainfall in this area has changed so much in three years that it really scares me! Vegetation that once was is just disappearing due to a much lower rainfall and very high temperatures in summer and rising temperatures during winter months
