Now that the status of the koala has been upgrade to vulnerable in NSW, that surely must make the DA of the Yelgun festival not worth the money it’s written on. State government made their decision some weeks ago showing total indifference to widespread community concerns and now the game has changed.
Splendour organisers must surely have to go back to the drawing board and realise that 35,000 people camped next to a vulnerable koala habitat just beggars belief. Sustainable tourism? Yeah right…
These people need to get real and we need to get mobilised, against the relentless, greedy corporate, ‘culture’ that wants to turn Byron shire into some groovy, psychedelic utopia.
If we can’t adequately protect koalas, we’ve got nothing.
