Notes from recent PPG meeting

The Mandurah Entrance Road is nearing completion. Members were disappointed about the extent of clearing for this road (especially through Marlee Reserve)and the extent of “Legacy” projects to compensate for this. It is hoped that the time will heal the scars!

Submissions & Letters

We have written alerting our newly elected Federal Minister for the Environment of our concerns about proposed developments near Lake clifton, which will place demands on the freshwater lens in the area. This in turn, places the Thrombolites at risk.

Lake Clifton has been classified as a “Threatened Ecological Community’ status (see http://www.environment.gov.au/epbc) and click on “Lake Clifton”. PPG also wrote a submission in agreement of this classification, which will give the area greater protection.

Dawesville to Binningup Coastline – The EPA has undertaken a review to clarify the environmental values of the region and the state of current knowledge and scientific data about these values. This information (Bulletin Report No. 1359)has identified additional areas of conservation significance (for example areas adjacent to the Peel-Yalgorup National Park), and areas that may have potential for development and land use that are compatible with the environmental values.

Work is continuing on a Grant Application to have a bird hide built at Lake McLarty. We hope to obtain funding for a ground level bird hide with wheelchair access and a raised viewing platform. This option was chosen so that the hide would be built on the sand ridge near the water tank rather than nearer to the lake where Acid Suplhate Soil may be present.

Lotterywest granted funds to update the PPG book “The Birds of Goegrup and Black Lakes”. Dick Rule and his team have completed counting sessions and a flora survey has been performed. The final editing is underway ready for printing. We are pleased to have been able to produce a second updated edition of this book. The updated information will contribute to a growing data base of birds in the region.
