Durban - Former competitive South African pool swimmer Sarah Ferguson’s close encounters with nature on her recent Elephant Coast expedition have unequivocally reinforced her determination to expose the dangers of plastic pollution.
As an ambassador for SPAR Eastern Cape’s Stop Plastic campaign, Ferguson swam 100km over a six-day period, from Ponta Dobela in Mozambique to Sodwana Bay in KwaZulu-Natal last month.
In July, Ferguson linked up with SPAR EC to support them in their Stop Plastic campaign, which was launched in April.
The chief objective of the swim is to create a seven-part documentary series which Ferguson’s environmental movement, Breathe Conservation, is producing to demonstrate the threat of plastic pollution.
The Cape Town-based physiotherapist spoke about the importance of society taking responsibility for the threat posed by plastic.
