MINISTER OF WHALES AND PARROTS ABANDONS DUGONGS
The proposal for construction of two rock breakwater walls at Oyster Point has been approved by the Commonwealth Environment Minister Ian Campbell.
In the only concession to the world heritage listed wildlife of the affected area, the Minister has diminished protection to the level of mere "signage".
Nothing but limits to boating access can protect dugongs and sea turtles from the sheer volume of boating traffic attracted by convenience of access; yet boating activity in this dugong habitat is completely uncontrolled.
