Protecting the coastline:
An EPWP success story

Monday, March 6, 2017 by CapeNature

Meet Selwyn Gertse, a pupil field ranger at Kogelberg Nature Reserve Complex and Betty’s Bay Marine Protected Area.

Selwyn has turned his love for nature into a career, as he is training to become a marine field ranger in the Kogelberg Nature Reserve complex.  The video embedded below is his testimony of his time as a CapeNature project participant in the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP).

The province-wide footprint of CapeNature’s operations presents an opportunity to improve the lives of people and communities, especially in the rural landscape, by providing job opportunities and reducing poverty and unemployment.

These projects focus on historically disadvantaged communities – especially women, youth and people with disabilities.
