Cape Point to Cape Agulhas
Cape Point to Cape Agulhas is a proposed coastal EBSA at the junction of the Benguela and Agulhas currents, thus Indian and Atlantic Oceans. It comprises 32 different habitats and includes key islands, two major bays (False Bay and Walker Bay), and several threatened coastal, inshore and inner shelf ecosystem types. This EBSA contains important breeding and/or foraging grounds for a myriad of top predators, including sharks, whales, and seabirds, some of which are threatened, such as the Endangered African penguin. It is also one of a few locations where surf diatom accumulations occur in South Africa, that in turn fuel sandy shores with heightened productivity.
