“Bantamsklip is the name given to a spot on a pristine coastline near Gansbaai, on the southwestern Overberg coast in South Africa. National energy provider Eskom, aided and abetted by the South African Government, has earmarked Bantamsklip as one of the preferred sites for its nuclear power station ‘roll out’. The Bantamsklip Organisation (NPO) is united in the belief that the proposed siting of a nuclear power plant at Bantamsklip is inappropriate and ill-advised. The area around Bantamsklip is an island in a sea of private and public nature reserves, marine reserves, national parks, heritage sites and Special Management Areas.
It is recognised as a World botanical ‘hot-spot’.
Very few would argue that this place is not worth conserving.”
