WATER IS LIFE
In this episode the focus is on water. While water scarcity and water pollution are global issues, here in South Africa we have very specific problems. Over the last few months, stories about the dire state of our fresh water sources have made national news with some rivers like the Vaal, the Apies reaching critical levels of pollution. In this episode we’re joined by two experts to update us and provide some solutions.
CROCODILE RIVER RESEARCH
Staying with the theme of water: a team of researchers from the University of Johannesburg are doing some ground-breaking research into the early detection of heavy metals in water using fish-lice!
In Wonderwêreld we focus on cobras of all kinds! Deserts, forest canopies and the bushveld are all home to some of South Africa’s diverse and well-adapted cobra species. Move a little closer but don’t close your eyes because you #Needtoknow.
Entries to the VeldFokus competition have closed…but don’t miss out on tonight’s show where we look back on some of the coolest entries we received this season. From the cute and cuddly to the feeding frenzies, and even a serious fight or two!
Tune in this Sunday at 19h00 on SABC 2!
