Show support for Geelong’s Moolap salt works in Australia.

Posted Saturday 30th January 2016 at 15:21 by Rick and Elis
John Newman of the Geelong Field Naturalists Club has written to us asking for some support for a local community conservation project and it is something we can all get involved in, even those of us who live at the other side of the world. The problem may be local in one sense, but as part of the already struggling East-Asian Australasian Flyway, it is of international concern that such places are under threat. John rightly points out that we cannot keep badgering the Chinese and Koreans to protect sites for migrating birds if in Australia they don't do the same. From our perspective as people with a global concern for what is happening to waders, the fact that it is a long way away does not make the issue any less crucial or important to our aim of securing a safer world for our waders.

Geelong's Moolap salt works (460Ha) in Victoria Australia is at risk of becoming a housing and marina development.
