Our vision is simple, we love our coastline, we want the North Coast between Ballito and Christmas bay to be the cleanest, most well protected, special, full of life, healthy stretch of coast in the country. We live on the edge of an amazing wilderness, we want people to share our appreciation for this incredible place, look after our home and keep our coast free of poaching, aquarium collecting, litter, cruelty and thoughtless extraction of our marine resources. 

The North Coast is incredibly special, the more people we can expose to this, the better the chances our children will be able to enjoy the diversity of life we have here now, ignore the problems and the future will be very different. 

Interested in getting involved in protecting our coastline? Want to know more about our inter tidal areas, special coral, fish, marine invertebrates? Make a positive difference? Then PLEASE join us on the 14th July 2015 at the Salt Rock Library for our first monitoring and data collection planning and training session


The rocky shoreline (Intertidal zone) between Ballito in the South and Christmas Bay to the north has incredibly rich natural beauty and an array of wildlife that the average tourist and many resident are totally unaware of.

environmental education

Children are born with a sense of wonder and an affinity for Nature. Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living. Children will inherit what we leave behind. 

monitoring biodiversity in the ocean

Gathering baseline data on our coastal biodiversity, When it comes to fish species, marine invertebrates and other intertidal life, no one has any idea of population trends, threats, risks or species diversity along our shoreline. 

Expect a whole range of educational resources, teaching tools, ID guides and other exciting developments coming here soon!!
