Chinese lanterns, also known as sky lanterns, are illegal according to a press release sent out by Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith in November 2014.But still people release them.The sky lanterns cause havoc for NSRI volunteers who respond to sightings of what people think are emergency flares when they float out to sea. They have also been the cause of wild fires (most recently at Rietvlei in Cape Town) and cause the death of animals.Sea Rescue spokesman Craig Lambinon was on Cape Talk this morning once again asking people to please not release them.skylanterns
