If you did that imagine how many Little Terns that would be electrocuted?? I
actually got a call about children taking the Little Terns from the beach
down there at Narooma/Wallaga Lake.......before christmas and I gather now
nothing was done by National Parks back then? It is a pretty sad world we
live in.
I am also trying to get an Eastern GRey Kangaroo at North Durras caught and
euthanased as she has had rope entangled around her foot for months now. I
went up to check her just after xmas I met 2 rangers up there and they were
just interested in chasing her around in this awful heat we were having that
day. They just wanted to remove the rope and let her go??? The foot is badly
swollen and infection would have set in by now so if they stress her by
chasing her around taking the rope off when infection will spread slowly
through the rest of her body and she will die slowly. When all they have to
do it euthanase her and they wont. This poor roo is suffering so much I get
calls about her everyday and we cant do anything as National Parks are
"supposed" to be checking on her??
What about the habitat loss for our Yellow Bellied Gliders?? All our possums
gliders, macropods, birds and other species are being pushed out of their
natural environment because us humans are cutting down the trees. I will
post an article written by our Sectretary, she wanted it sent out to as many
different places as possible.
We wont have any wildlife soon and we will wonder why.....?
