THE CLEANMARINE OYSTERCATCHER HERO FOR MAY: MICHAEL RAIMONDO
Posted on the 20th May 2018
Michael Raimondo, of the Hoek van de Berg Nature Reserve and owner of Green Renaissance was the worthy recipient of BirdLife Overberg's CleanMarine Oystercatcher Hero award last night. Many outstanding conservation films and videos have been produced by Michael over the years.
The oystercatcher hero award is however in recognition of Michael and his family and friends who are cleaning the beautiful Hoek van de Berg coastline of marine litter on an ongoing and continued basis. They further clear alien vegetation along the coastline on a regular basis. The BirdLife Overberg coastal clean-up team have worked along this stretch of coastline several times and will again do so next month – Michael’s dedication to conservation is a beacon of light to us all.
