This is not strictly related to Birding however given the continuing thread on road kill I thought I'd bring it up. I live in suburban western brisbane and a new development is quickly devouring a small pocket of remnant bushland containing a small colony of swamp wallabies. A recent major road opening adjacent to the development has resulted in numerous dead wallabies. Despite local pressure the developer refuses to part with a small fee to have NPWS attempt to remove and relocate the population. I am aware that relocation is difficult and not always successful however it seems a better alternative than to have these animals "disperse" - read "end up as road kill" which is the councils line.
My question is - are any of you aware of a local council that includes native wildlife relocation as a condition of planning approval? Brisbane City Council has no such requirement.
