Children collecting river data

For the past year, Eqhweni Soul Buddies have been involved in monitoring their river for any signs of pollution. A mini SASS score based on the types of macro invertabrates founds living in the water. Some macroinvertabrates like snails, leeches and True Flies are tolerant to pollution and are found in dirty water others like Stone Flies are found in the crystals waters high up in the catchment. The children were delighted to find a high scoring Mayfly in the water indicating a healthy river ecosystem.
