Does anyone know what the east west link authority intends to do about birds that have been displaced from the wetlands.
There is a biodiversity act that requires that developers create an equal amount of biodiversity to what they destroy. I have not seen Linking Melbourne mention this in their impact assessment though. EWL = Good for trucks, bad for birds. Birds are not their concern. They just want to keep the trucks happy.
Is the biodiversity act legally binding?
At the very least the authorities should replace the biodiversity that is removed to accommodate existing fauna populations
Unfortunately, the entire Ross Straw field and wetlands area has been earnarked as a construction equipment storage area? Bye bye Ross Straw field. Bye bye wetlands!
