SAEON researchers Simon Todd and Joh Henschel acted as co-authors for a chapter in a new publication on hydraulic fracturing in the Karoo:

Todd SW, Hoffman MT, Henschel JR, Cardoso AW, Brooks M & Underhill LG. 2016. The potential impacts of fracking on biodiversity of the Karoo Basin, South Africa. In: Glazewski J, Esterhuyse S (eds) Hydraulic Fracturing in the Karoo: Critical Legal and Environmental Perspectives. Juta, Claremont. Chapter 14, p 278-301.


On 6 December 2016, Sibongile Mokoena, SAEON’s former education outreach coordinator, was honoured with a Certificate of Recognition from the DST/NRF at the Global Change Conference hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) for her pioneering work in SAEON’s Education Outreach programme.

Pictured here with Dr Phil Mjwara, Director-General of the Department of Science and Technology (L), Prof Albert van Jaarsveld, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of UKZN (R) and Elronah Schaap, former Operations Manager at Inkaba yeAfrica, Sibongile said: “For me, this represented a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be recognised at a science platform of such importance by the highest science office in the land”.
