3 Skeppies Application Example 1 Of Supporting Photos Salt
The photo application should attempt to be a visual replica of the written application. In other words, by merely going
through the supporting photo application, the panel evaluating your application must be able to determine what you want to do.
Doing this properly is in your own best interest since the panel members are not able to do a pre-application site visit. The
saying is: “a picture is worth a thousand words.” If the file becomes too big we will try to reduce its size in Adobe Acrobat. The
following example is of the SALT project and is used with their approval.
What do they want to do?
In terms of its conservation impact, the project wants to restore 3 pieces of
disturbed land surrounding the Large Telescope.
The second area, indicated as number 2 in the photo above, is the slope
running down from the Large Telescope to the road. This area was
disturbed when pipes were laid to the large telescope.
The third area (no 3) is the area surrounding the visitor center. This area
was affected during the inauguration of SALT in November 2005.
The first area shown above is that immediately surrounding the building
housing the large telescope.
How do they want to do it?
Undisturbed area with
plants and natural
Disturbed area with no
plants or natural stone
The huge pieces of rock left as part of the construction and strewn around
will also be removed.
With the guidance and help of the Western Cape Department of Agriculture
a detailed procedure will be followed. For example, every 10th stone with be
removed from the undisturbed area and placed in the disturbed area. In this
way the undisturbed area remains mainly undisturbed.
Sections will be fenced off in both areas. In the undisturbed areas seedlings
will be collected in the fenced off areas to be sowed in the disturbed area.
The disturbed areas will be fenced of to protect it from people and
Springbok and thus giving it time to restore.
