SAMSA SST Tour Visits Local Schools
“I wish with all my heart to make a difference, big or small, as long as I can help to save my sea,” was the SEA Pledge submitted by grade 11 Simon’s Town High School learner, Calvin van der Merwe, to the Sustainable Seas Trust (SST) last Tuesday.
The SST along with the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) is currently on the SAMSA SEA Pledge Saldanha to Sodwana Tour. For four weeks the team will be touring South Africa’s coast line and spreading the word of coastal conservation to everyone from young school children to the various mayors and dignitaries along the way. Everyone encountered on the tour will be asked to make a SEA Pledge, where they set their own personal goals of how they will contribute to securing the healthy future of our oceans.
