There is much talk about the vulnerability of koalas on the Tweed, and quite rightly. However, other wildlife is being overlooked.
Another (too frequent) death on the Coast Road overnight is a reminder that we share this land with other species. Its wet fur glistening in the lights of passing cars, the wallaby lying on the side of the road is another victim of increasing urbanisation. It highlights the fact that the local population of these gorgeous creatures is being steadily decimated. And to me it highlights the fact that we all need to slow down, especially in areas which are not well lit and where we know wildlife is likely to be.
It’s going to be a barren place when all the animals are gone!
