Die Oog

PLEASE HELP “Die Oog” In Bergvliet.

It is doomed with this drought. Please join Friends of Die Oog. Contact the admin and help in any way possible . This sanctuary was a haven for leopard toads ,the Cape Weever birds amongst plenty more -they are dying, the water is literally on rock bottom.

The thought of topping up Die Oog with water sounds good but we do need to look at in a water scarce situation where we will obtain the water from as well as checking with the Conservation Department of the city.

Die Oog is a conservation area and comprises four distinct but integrated, surviving bio diverse areas.

The Dam fills in winter, often to overflowing and the water levels fall in summer. There is a small artificial island that was built of ironstone 100 years ago.

The surrounding grassland contains shrubs and trees that provide habitat for birds. The banks of the dam consist of reeds and plants that provide valuable cover for water birds. The area has paths, benches and viewpoints of the dam and is intended for quiet recreation.

 

The granite fynbos area is situated on the eastern boundary of Die Oog and has been staked off for conservation.

Please join Friends of Die Oog we are a volunteer group and rely on a membership of R50 per annum to help maintain Die Oog.

If you are interested in joining Friends of Die Oog please email admin@dieoog.org.za

Let’s SAVE de Oog!
