Attempt to manage Byron’s fragile coastline impeded by State Government, report finds

Insufficient funding and guidance from the State Government is inhibiting Byron Council's attempt to effectively manage its famous but fragile coastline, a Council report has revealed.

An embargoed story about a new wildlife hospital for Byron Bay was mistakenly published in The Echo newspaper on May 27, 2020.

Crowdfunding for the fully equipped custom-built mobile hospital, will officially launched on June 3, 2020.

Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital Ltd CEO and founder, Dr Stephen Van Mil, said, ‘Australia’s bushfire crisis killed one billion native animals and highlighted the massive gap in facilities to rescue, treat and rehabilitate injured wildlife throughout the country’.

The mobile hospital is scheduled to be operational by September.
