Community members seem to be running into dead ends with bureaucrats and politicians in efforts to protect a unique and very important wetland habitat for shore birds which travel from Russia, China, Japan and around Australia to forage in North-West Sydney. It’s as if the bureaucrats and politicians are not interested in matters of high ecological significance. Surely environmental sensitivity is part of the role which they occupy.

Provided below are extracts of a brochure produced by community members which identify the values of the site and makes suggestions of what you can do:
