Umbilo Ponds: where we need to take action

Cast your eyes over these pictures: there is a problem of what is I think Water Hyacinth spreading over the ponds, mixed in with some indigenous water plants.  There are municipal workers removing plants, but not enough is being taken out, given the rate of growth.  Not all is lost: see the Goliath Heron!  The last photo is of Ipomoea Purpurea smothering the bank just below the one parking area.
