Illegal Wildlife Trade: Perlemoen Poaching

The theme for World Environment Day (5 June 2016) is ‘Go Wild for Life’, taking a zero tolerance approach to the illegal wildlife trade. Wildlife trade is the sale or exchange of wild animals (dead or alive) or plants to be used for food, curios, medicinal ingredients, skins or even as trophies. Legal wildlife trade is regulated, however, illegal trade has grown tremendously and is now one of the major illegal money-making trades.

Cape Point Winter Special

Keep the winter chills at bay with Cape Point’s mid-year specials (1 June to 31 July 2016) where two kids (aged 6 -16) ride free on the Flying Dutchman Funicular when an adult return ticket is bought for R58. Head up to the lighthouse and enjoy 360-degree land and sea views – if you’re lucky, you may even spot a whale or two. Pop into the Lighthouse 5 store (at the top funicular station) or the Logo Store (at the parking lot) and you’ll receive a free Cape Point placemat and coaster set with every purchase over R400.
