The Plett Environmental Forum
The Plett Environmental Forum is a registered non-profit organization, made up of a group of concerned individuals and environmental organizations. The Forum has been involved in the protection of the environment and promotion of sustainable development in the Bitou Municipal area (Plettenberg Bay and surrounds) since 1996.
The Bitou area
The Bitou area is renowned for its natural beauty: mountains, forests, estuaries, fynbos. However, this natural heritage is under increasing pressure from over-exploitation and inappropriate development.
The people of Bitou
We, the people living in the area, need to balance the need for expansion and development with careful use of the environment to ensure that future generations of residents and tourists will continue to share in this natural bounty.
