Have a read of this – I suppose it would be the same for all areas?





Position on the Impact of Development on Native Animals     


In line with WIRES concerns regarding Australian wildlife and it’s needs for habitat in the proposed development of rural / residential land in the Eurobodalla Shire.


These sub-divisions are putting threatened and endangered species at risk, the most prominent being the Yellow Bellied Glider.


WIRES also recognises that, with or without development, there are complex issues involved in the management of fauna. These issues present difficult choices for the responsible stakeholders and, while WIRES has neither authority nor responsibility for these decisions, we urge those who do to base their actions upon the principles of:


1)     Minimum possible suffering and stress to wildlife

2)     Minimisation of interactions between humans and wildlife which may lead to the stress or injury of either

3)     Retention of the greatest possible areas of wildlife habitat

4)     Restoration of as much of these sites as possible to their original state (pre European) supporting as far as possible, a sustainable population of wildlife species endemic to these sites.
