Acting on the instructions of the Wildlands Conservation Trust, we represented the Friends of Tsitsikamma, a voluntary association comprising scientists, academics and marine conservationists throughout South Africa in an urgent application to interdict and review a decision by the relevant authorities to permit recreational angling in the Tsitsikamma Marine Protected Area. This was a landmark matter for conservationists in their bid to protect “protected areas” and the matter involved procedural and administrative fairness, section 24: Environmental Rights of the Constitution, the Rule of Law, the Constitution and contraventions of the Protected Areas Act and the National Environmental Management Act.
