As Byron Shire’s mayor jaunts off to Paris, France, for a climate change forum we might want to consider climatic issues closer to home.
For a council with the highest natural biodiversity in the state and approximately 75 natural reserves on council estate to look after, we have three staff bush regenerators on council to manage these sites with a variety of management issues. Basically they’re chasing their tails to keep up to weeds etc.
The council’s environment team leader position has been downgraded!
On these very important global, climate issues it’s maybe a time to ‘think globally, act locally’.
