Coming up on 5050 this Sunday 08 Feb 2019
It doesn’t matter where in South Africa, or the world, you go, you’re likely to find habitat fragmentation, which means that ecosystems can’t function together as a whole. The Soutpansberg is one such an unusual, threatened environment. We join Bertus as he shows us around this rare, unusual and absolutely beautiful environment, getting us a little closer to the wonders of nature that live there.
(EEP) ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROJECT
A brand-new insert zooms in on young learners as they discover their environment in the classroom and beyond! We visit Zululand to find out more about an innovative project that’s getting local school children excited about wildlife in their immediate environment and at a game reserve on their doorstep.
In South Africa’s bushveld a herd of Cape buffalos begin their daily trek to water… But despite some of their members being 800kgs of pure muscle and armed with meter-wide horns, where there are lions there is always danger. Find out what happens in Wonderwêreld.
SIMON SAYS: SUPERNOVA
In Simon Says this week the question, “what is a Supernova?” gets answered. This is astronomy 101 made a little easier by Simon, the scientist.
An unusual sighting of a mole-rat above ground… amazing photos of successful courtship behaviour in the beautiful Kgalagadi… and finally off to the ocean for a mesmerising whale display! All this, and more, in this week’s VeldFokus.
Tune in this Sunday at 19h00 on SABC 2!
