The Hartebeesport Dam is cleared of invasive hyacinth

Hennops Blue Horizon, upon invitation by Kyle Odgers from KleenUP, met with a team of local and international scientists at Hartebeespoort Dam. We joined to witness and discuss the phenomenal transformation of the dam after the introduction of the bug Meganelus which has eaten away the invasive hyacinth which has dominated the dam’s surface for years. The project headed by Julie Coetzee from the Centre for Biological Control at Rhodes University has been a remarkable success.
