Karoo News is now being emailed to you from our webmasters in Port Elizabeth in order to ensure a more reliable cyberspace delivery to the Karoo network.
Please be reminded that you have until Friday, February 18 to register as an I&AP (Interested & Affected Party) in the proposed natural gas exploration which could lead to frack mining in all 3 Karoo Cape provinces. Click here to read more.

Until next time!

Bees have magnetite in their bodies to aid navigation. Scientists have found cell phone radiation (electrosmog) to be a major factor in the decline of bee populations.
Pesticides and certain combinations of chemicals (which affect bees’ brains) may be equally damaging.
