ONRUS VERMONT PLATANNA RELOCATION UPDATE 10.02.2022 @ 10:30
After more information has come to light, it is now evident that the Platannas are migrating from the Vermont Salt Pan in a South Easterly direction towards the Onrus River.
Around 1 000 rescued Platannas have already been released at a site along Peterson Street on the banks of the Onrus River.
Liezl de Villiers, senior manager of the Overstrand Environmental Management Services (EMS) Department, would like to thank her team, as well as Whale Coast Conservation and many volunteers from Onrus and Vermont for their assistance thus far. She especially thanked the young helpers and future herpetologists for their willingness to assist catching and releasing the frogs.
