NEW HIGHWAY THREATENS PROTECTED KOALA POPULATIONS
A koala habitat study was presented to Ballina Council in December and Effie Ablett from the Ballina Environment Society said it “changes everything”.
The report, written be respected ecologist Dr Steve Phillips, identifies the Meerschaum Vale, Blackwall Range and Coolgardie koala population as “a key source population for breeding and dispersal” and suggests it should be listed as an “important population” under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Act.
Dr Phillips’s research suggests the koalas in that region have been there since at least the beginning of the 20th century and they are the source population for the Byron coast and probably Lismore.
“There are a number of criteria they meet for being considered an ‘important population’ and since they have been listed as a threatened species, any impact on their long-term survival needs to be considered very seriously in that context.”
Ms Ablett said the colony wouldn’t survive the construction of a four-lane highway.
Ballina councillor Jeff Johnson said federal and state ministers needed to reconsider the route.
Ballina Mayor David Wright said the koala study had been forwarded to the Roads and Maritime Services general manager Bob Higgins, and they will meet next week.
“Council’s position is that koalas are paramount and everything must be done to protect them. But it will be one of the last sections to be built, so there is still time to investigate,” he said



A meeting to discuss the campaign to save Ballina’s koalas will be held at Ballina RSL on February 18 at 7pm.
Even with all the protest, conclusion: They mining for coal and building the highway!

This is my dearest friend Deb’s place on the Buckombil Mountain, in  Meerschaum Vale, NSW, about 20 minutes away from Ballina. She has a panoramic view of the pacific ocean.

Great RIGHT? 

The Australian government have decided that they are quarrying sections of the mountain for a new highway and , she is going to lose that view, a highway is going to go through this mountain, about 37 hectares of ranges, they are deforesting that whole area, all the families, animals, critters  are all going to be invaded or lose their homes. No more hiking or rock climbing, no more peace of mind, no more nature!!!

I have had the pleasure to spend some time there and it is spectacularly beautiful, scenic and full of green. Very zen, untouched and brimming with life.

Why?? The greed of humans, we can not eat money people, wake up!!!

Seriously, what is this world coming to, do we need the entire planet covered in TAR??? 

Peace
