The Aliens Are Back!

The Aliens Are Back!
Wednesday, 18 February 2015 15:45

Scheduled Alien Vegetation clearing will no longer be taking place after the Cape Fires of the first week of March 2015. There is nothing to clear! 

The Aliens are back… or did they ever leave?  The Allies of Humanity and Natural Resources have been monitoring the Alien Presence on Chapmans Peak Drive and have issued a statement.

Chapman’s Peak Drive is rich in natural resources and “ALIENS” are resource seekers. They are here to seduce our delicate eco-systems, steal  our underground water and emerge into our world, which is no longer isolated from their threat.

We must heed the warnings and be aware of this threat, and more importantly get prepared and protect our slopes.  By the powers that govern this #Chappies Galaxy, we have established a “Removal of the Aliens Declaration”. As we cannot use military might we have called in the Protectors of Natural Resources, SANParks, who will be sending a specialised task team to the region every Wednesday for approximately a month.

Here the Alien Crack Unit will use highly trained identification powers to seek out the aliens and identify hybrids and imposters.   These plants can expand rapidly in anger increasing hot spots of danger and using their primary weapon of attack to destroy our natural fynbos via Veld Fires.

This special Alien Vegetation Clearing unit will use ropes, technology and adventurous techniques to cut, chop, clear and force the Aliens to leave so we can protect our slopes from the increasing threat and danger these Aliens present.

The SANParks Alien Unit will tackle the slopes between 09h00 and 16h00 on Wednesdays from 25th Feb 2015, where debris and alien vegetation will be destroyed and thrown down onto the drive for clearance and final destruction.  This seemingly hazardous and treacherous manner is the most effective control method for eradication of the Aliens!  These aliens don’t believe in “local-is-lekker”

In order to assist The Allies of Humanity and Natural Resources , all of us here at Chapman’s Peak Drive are committed to protecting our slopes and as such we shall organise a scheduled closure of #Chappies to all traffic and let the team take to the  upper slopes of the mountain above our drive  to attack and remove as many aliens as possible between 09h00 – 16h00.

These aliens must go!   They have no natural enemies here and we want our fynbos back.  Please help and support us and SANParks in the process of removing these aliens, which will decrease the risk of veld fires and let our natural vegetation grow back.

We need you to help in this fight to get rid of the Aliens.   Please travel before 09h00 or after 16h00 on Wednesdays.   Should you need to travel between Noordhoek and Hout Bay between those times, kindly use Ou Kaapse Weg as an alternative route.  We thank you for your co-operation and trust the mild inconvenience will be worth the governance required to rid our region of these Aliens.
