Cape Times – September 2013 – Goukamma Nature Reserve

A largely unknown gem of a protected area, Goukamma was placed at serious ecological risk when a large ship ran aground near the reserve’s beach, leaking about 50 tons of oil into the oceans, some of which washed up onto the shores. But fortunately, thanks to some heavy seas and the hard clean-up work of reserve staff, most of the oil has disappeared, so that today the reserve’s long beaches, fynbos and valuable marine protected area are once again back to their best.
