Ian and other concerned northern birders,
Indeed the proposal is to put a caravan park on the western side of the road adjacent to Yule Point. I feel that if it goes ahead we will definitely lose the Stone-Curlews from the area (and other important bird life). I have approached the local council about the matter and they say there is nothing we can do until the developers apply for approval. At this stage they have not applied.
Personally I think the damage to that unique area would be intolerable as I don't think you could stop the visitors to the park using the shore area.
I have prepared a list of wildlife in the area and a short paper on why the area is ecologically significant to the shire (ocean front mangroves etc).
I can let you know as soon as the application for the park gets to council if you are interested and have concerns it. The more people that respond to the council the better chance we have of saving the area.
