Rebecca Ingram, Wilsons Creek
I am so sick of begging cars to stop and wait for the ducks to cross the road at the Mullum Golf Course and surrounds. In fact some even speed up. I don’t get it.
I have asked Byron Council to put up signs regarding ducks crossing, but they don’t have any. But hey, they said if I put them up they won’t pull them down – so thoughtful… So many times on the way to morning school drop off my child has had to nurse or hold a dying bird, duck or swamp hen on Wilsons Creek Road and the roads into Mullum.
Over the years I have asked Byron Council, begged them, to put up speed limit signs and signs to slow down for wildlife, hitchhikers and cyclists. Their response? Signs don’t make a difference.
Our apparent Green Council reflects the selfishness that is growing in our community – they don’t give a damn about our environment, it’s just about themselves. It is so disappointing to see the decline of our once ethical community. It has gone – just like our wildlife. This is the new Mullumbimby.
