Western Cape: Lambert's Bay Bird Island Nature Reserve closes for planned maintenance!

CapeNature, the public institution with the responsibility for biodiversity conservation in South Africa's Western Cape, has announced that the Lambert's Bay Bird Island Nature Reserve will be closed on 04 April 2024 for planned maintenance and will reopen on 05 April 2024.
Bird Island lies about 100m off the shore of Lambert's Bay, a small fishing town in the Western Cape province of South Africa situated 280 kilometres north of Cape Town. The island, which is almost three hectares in size, is connected to the mainland via a breakwater. It is an important breeding and roosting site for seabirds, particularly Cape gannets and cormorants. Cape fur seals can be seen sunning themselves on the island’s rocks.
