Endangered Species Threatened by Council Developments


Sceale Bay on South Australia’s west coast is one of the most pristine pieces of coast line in Australia home to rare wildlife and vegetation. It is no wonder then that there is local uproar about council plans to develop the area for housing. Any development would degrade the environment and threaten the vast numbers of sea lions and the endangered osprey Sea Eagles that nest in the area. “Friends of Sceale Bay” member David Letch told “The Wire” he is concerned about the impact of developing houses around the endangered species habitat. David Kerner DAVID KIRNER from the CFMEU is critical of the local council and Professor Geoffrey Wescott says local councils around Australia need more help in dealing with environmental issues.
