South Africa – Plettenberg Bay – 9 June 2020 – The Salt River hike is in Nature’s Valley, which is 30 kilometers east of Plettenberg Bay. According to the Cape Hike website “This is a gorgeous, short walk taking in beautiful views of Nature’s Valley: the dunes and coastal vegetation, the Salt River Estuary, rocky Garden Route coastline and beautiful sandy beach.” According to Wikipedia “In 2000 researchers from the Albany Museum in Grahamstown discovered a number of aquatic insect species new to science in the Salt River, which lies at the western end of Nature’s Valley. The isolated position of the river, a lack of fish and its acidic and unpolluted water are thought to have been factors in ensuring the undisturbed survival of these primitive forms. New housing developments within the catchment area of the Salt River may threaten the continued existence of these unique insects.” Picture: David Ritchie/African News Agency(ANA)
