Julia Harrington, Byron Bay
Our Byron Council is preparing to do its bit of wetland habitat destruction and endangered local species extinction by draining and filling the only remaining natural wetlands in Byron CBD behind the new Woolies for a pissy bypass.
Cost no problem – it’s been promised – United Nations reports on the need for emergency action notwithstanding. Even blind Freddies can see that distant Biobanking is no help for preserving local species and that includes us air-breathing humans.
Stop this now or next year, with 2020 hindsight, this Council will be known here and internationally as the one that ‘paved paradise and put up a big hotel’ as predicted by Joni Mitchell.
Gone is forever! Wake up BEFORE it is too late!
