Mount Barker Summit - Conservation NOT Recreation!

Plans for the Development of Mt Barker Summit:…

Mount Barker Summit – Conservation NOT Recreation

The District Council of Mt Barker in conjunction with the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board is planning to upgrade Mt Barker Summit, to ‘improve the appearance’ & widen the paths to ‘make them more accessible’.

There are already countless ‘recreation reserves’ in Mt Barker & the Summit is the last bastion for conservation in the area, & is about to be destroyed.

Mount Barker Summit is one of the largest & last remaining pieces of natural bush accessible to the public, in an area that is already under immense pressure from clearing, expansion, & development.

Their plans for improvement will literally see some highly threatened species lost for ever.

The Lucky Country

Waking up this morning it almost feels like the world’s gone mad, the news is just so devastating it’s hard to take it all in:…

The worst bushfires in Australia’s history in Victoria, killing many people – 108 confirmed at this stage, hundreds of homes lost, family & children’s cherished pets killed or missing, as well as businesses & livelyhoods lost, livestock killed or wandering loose on the hot burnt ground, hectares of beautiful native bushland lost, wildlife killed…the lost is just incalcuable.

Fires in NSW burning through bushland causing devastation to wildlife.

King Tides & Floods in QLD with 60% of QLD suffering from flood damage and listed as a desaster zone & Ingham devastated by flood again for the second time in a week…more people’s lives lost, livelyhoods gone & a child miss

Victoria's Bushfires

Our thoughts & prayers go out to all those affected by the Bushfires in Victoria. Such devastation is almost incomprehensible, such a sad loss of life, wildlife & bushland…. It all seems so senseless.

There is no greater hero than the firefighter…

As for those who start fires…I won’t put into words what I think their punishment should be.

Heat Wave

During this heat wave I’ve heard that birds & animals are getting very distressed & dying…ie – possums who can’t cope with the intense heat, just falling out of trees. Yesterday, on my way home from work I saw a pigeon sitting on a car roof…it looked very distressed & I’m guessing didn’t survive.…

Due to our water restrictions people aren’t filling up their bird baths, and many households & work places don’t have any water outside & the birds & animals are struggling to find water to cool themselves down & hydrate in this heat.

So, to help the birds & animals that share our baking planet, I thought I’d suggest that people place an icecream container of water outside during this heatwave, to help them make it through, and depending on your workplace, it might be an idea to take one to work

Last Chance to by my work @ Café Alto

Hi All,

For those of you who have seen my work on display at Café Alto in Mt Barker, this is the last chance you’ll have to buy that picture you’ve been eyeing off, as they are coming down in two weeks time! So if there’s something you’ve been admiring, or something you’ve seen that you thought someone else might like, now is the time to grab it before they go : )

Many thanks,

When 2 is better than 1

I have finally got around to creating my bubblesites! And 1 just wasn’t enough, so I have 2 : )

“Leeo” is for my nature pics, which includes macros, landscapes, flowers & digital manipulation.
