The MRCT is excited to announce the roll out of a new project. The Mosselbank Wetland Wonderers, a youth eco-club, which will be funded by Nature Connect and the Table Mountain Fund. The members of the club will be youth that have volunteered with the MRCT and showed dedication to the programme. They will be taken on excursions such as Nature Hikes, the Aquarium and Table Mountain while learning about wetlands and the Cape Floristic Region.
