DAA Talk: The Importance of D’Moss By Richard Boon - Monday, 9 October 2017

Dear Alumni and friends,

THE IMPORTANCE OF D’MOSS BY RICHARD BOON - UKZN ALUMNUS AND ETHEKWINI MUNICIPALITY’S MANAGER OF THE BIODIVERSITY PLANNING BRANCH IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING AND CLIMATE PROTECTION DEPARTMENT 

D’MOSS stands for the Durban Metropolitan Open Space System, which was also previously known as the eThekwini Environmental Services Management Plan or EESMP. D’MOSS is a system of open spaces, some 74 000ha of land and water, that incorporates areas of high biodiversity value linked together in a viable network of open spaces.

Examples of areas included in D’MOSS are nature reserves (e.g. Paradise Valley, Burman Bush and Kenneth Stainbank Reserve), large rural landscapes in the upper catchments and riverine and coastal corridors. Some areas of privately-owned land are also included in D’MOSS.

Richard Boon’s presentation will focus on the importance and history of the Durban Metropolitan Open Space System, opening our eyes to an integral part of our daily lives in eThekwini.

Prepare to be enlightened as you join us for what promises to be a most entertaining, family friendly evening with wine, juice, snacks and good-company afterwards!
