Artist's Description

Images from Lake Bonney, South Australia, Taken April 2008.

Lake Bonney is a natural lake which is fed by the Murray River. Due to the current drought the lake has been cut off from the Murray and is in danger of drying out in a few years.

This is not the first time this has happened. In 1915 the lake dried out so much the locals farmed cereal crops on the dry bed only to be washed out by the 1916 floods.

The death of the large river redgums of Lake Bonney are not the result of the current drought but the building of a loch on the river which prevented the natural rise and fall of the lake waters. This had an adverse effect on the natural breeding grounds of native fish and waterfowl and caused the death of the gums.

Lake Bonney is still home to a multitude of wildlife especially birds and it would be an ecological disaster to loose it.
