This month Lindo Zqubu, our newest recruit, who teaches in KZN Midlands, visited our Durban based WaterWise Instructor ( and NSRI volunteer) Jacqui McAllister for a day of Coastline awareness.Lindo is more familiar with the rivers and the dams, so Jacqui took him for a slow drive, stopping off at regular different spots, talking about the changing coastline, and the resultant changing conditions. Lindo was unfamiliar with the sea and rip currents. Jacqui explained how rip currents are created and how they impact on our safety and by the end of the morning Lindo was happily pointing out the rip currents on his own. And most importantly will be able to pass his new knowledge on to the children who live in the Midlands.Lindo and Jacqui. Lindo and Jacqui.
