Weeds where water should be.

I visited the Cooriemungle creek recently and found not much has changed , this creek once held blackfish and platypus but not anymore.

I have repeatedly asked the overseers of these rivers and creeks for action and none has been forthcoming .

for those who want more info you can call me on 0407843998.

Glass half full

Once again I have found broken glass bottles, and as was the case last time they were in a place where children could have easily walked on them , just think of the damage these could do to a child’s foot.

I picked these up and disposed of them like the people who put them there should have, there are bins only a hundred metres away right near the top of the boat ramp.

Bullen Merri fish kill

Today I received a telephone call from the Cobden coast times , the reporter was after a comment about a fish kill at Bullen Merri of which I knew nothing so I set off to have a look and sure enough there is a fish kill caused by oxygen starvation due to ongoing blue-green algae blooms , I have warned about this happening and I am not happy about being proved right.

Inaction by the bureaucrats over many years have led us to this and I fear we will see many more in the future if we don’t take action now.

There were unconfirmed reports of two Bass dead as well as brown trout.
