Previously we have had a discussion on the proper response of birding organisations to a plan to use 200 hectares of Black-breasted Button-quail habitat for a development of 6,500 people

The Rainbow Shores development is on the Inskip Peninsula immediately south of Fraser Island in Queensland. The development was refused by the Gympie Regional Council on the instructions of the Department of Environment and Resource Management and the developer has appealed. A number of individuals and groups have joined the action to oppose the develoment. (Fraser Island Defenders Organisation, Citizens Helping Inskip Peninsula, Cooloola Coastcare, National Parks Association of Queensland) I thought that people may be interested in a quick update.

The trial is set down for 3 weeks from 16th January 2012 with a site inspection on the 6th and 7th December 2011. So the crunch is coming as we seek to protect the BBBQ and its habitat. It's a bit scary.

More information is available on or on background the CHIP website
