About Mosselbank River Conservation Team


Observing the impact that pollution had on the river, local resident Ms Elizabeth Maans, decided to take hands with a few residents and conducted their own clean-ups in 2016. The local developer then had the responsibility to rehabilitate the Mosselbank River Wetlands and approached Ms Maans to engage with local community leaders to start a volunteer team to involve the community in the rehabilitation project. Out of this the Mosselbank River Conservation Team (MRCT) was born. In 2017 the team started with five volunteers who came together and tackle some of the area's environmental issues, but more specific issues related to the Mosselbank Wetlands. Today we have 21 registered members and in 2021 we registered the organisation as a NPC and NPO.
