Yesterday we visited Intaka Island, a bird sanctury at Century City and took a boat ride around the Island and to Canal Walk Shopping Centre and back.
It was very interesting to see the conservation effort being made at the bird sanctury to to hear how the water in the canals and ponds is multi-filtered water from the Postdam Sewerage Farm. It passes through numerous ponds with different aquatic life and plants before it enters the canal system and although it is not suitable for drinking it is clean enough to sustain life for the birds and water plants.
The main waterfront plaza at Canal Walk Shopping Centre with restaurants all around.
Because it was the middle of the day we did not see any birds other than those in the water. There is so much construction going on at Century City that even in the bird sanctuary the noise was constant. I bet those birds are going to be very relieved when the builders finally push off.
Have a great weekend Blogpeeps.
