Fracking in the Karoo - potential impacts on ecological systems

WESSA Eden invites you to attend an up-to-date, informative presentation on fracking in the Karoo. Jan Arkert, a consulting engineering geologist with 30 years of mining experience, will give us a presentation on the process of fracking and its socio-ecological impact on the affected areas. 

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is the combined application of drilling technology together with the ability to inject a chemical cocktail of fluids into shale rock formations to liberate methane gas. 

In July, earlier this year, environmentalist lobby groups won a court battle to halt the process of fracking. However, this is not the end of this persistent saga of fracking. Attend this event to get the latest insight on what is really happening regarding this destructive process.

Space at the Environmental Centre venue is limited to about 60 – 70 people, so it is advisable to book your seat well in advance via e-mail to Annemarie: 
Entrance R20 includes tea and biscuits. Donations to our coffers always welcome. 

DATE: 16 November 2019     
TIME:  9:45 for 10:00
VENUE: Environmental Education Centre, Garden Route Botanical Garden
