Ballina knit-in for Wrap With Love

Yesterday a big group of knitters responded to Ballina Library's call for a knit-in to help the charity Wrap With Love keep people warm this winter.

Tragically so much of our natural wildlife is at risk. ‘Dead’ zones along New Brighton Road, Old New Brighton Road, beachfront (no dog beach), South Golden Beach(SGB) to New Brighton is an abundant bush area with roaming domestic animals. Have seen in the past cats along Redgate Road and dogs running across the road just before the South Golden Beach Hall. 

When I first came to SGB wildlife abounded with bandicoots, water dragons, lizards of all shapes, sizes and colours. Destruction continues unabated. 

Very saddened by the amount of disproportionate attention given to dogs and cats as if there weren’t a problem. Owners of such are in collective self-denial.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Humans and our animals use less than 1.5% of the land on Earth. Move somewhere less comfortable to us, and you will find plenty of wildlife, even Tree Rats.
