Dave our resident bush regen guru is back!

Watch what Dave had to say from Suffolk Park this morning....

Oh and if you are interested in going native in your garden - be sure to check out Brunswick Valley Landcare's Guide to Native Plants - www.byron.nsw.gov.au/Projects-and-initiatives/Bush-regeneration-tips-with-Dave

Episode #3 - Garden escapes, is coming soon to Bush Tips with Dave!

Please DON'T DUMP GREEN WASTE at our bush regen sites.

It compromises the incredible work our team does to restore native biodiversity around Byron Shire.

This site, at Bayward swamp in Suffolk Park is a classic example of native v exotic species (and some illegal dumping 🙁 )

Stay tuned....

Bayward chase?

Have you been wondering what the new wooden fencing near the southern entry to Brunswick Heads is all about? Or the new road grids near the Pacific Highway interchange on Gulgan Road?

They are part of a number of protection measures being delivered by the RMS (Roads and Maritime Services) over the coming months to reduce the potential for road strikes on koalas, which are listed as a vulnerable species under threatened species legislation in NSW.

Detailed diagrams of the proposed new koala grids and fencing, as well as the REF (Review of Environmental Factors) and submissions report are available on the RMS website:
www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/northern-nsw/koala-grids/index.html

In addition to this, Council has committed $60,000 to undertake design work for fauna fencing and underpasses on Ewingsdale Road.

This follows a recent review conducted by Dr Steve Phillips of Biolink, recommending Council give consideration for the provision and safe under-road passage of koalas and other wildlife in the vicinity of Bayshore Drive and Sunrise Boulevard.

The works may include the provision of fauna paths, fencing on both sides of Ewingsdale Road, grids and intersections and driveways and self-closing gates on the cycleway and footpath.

It is important to note that these works are not required for the intersection upgrades at this point in time, but will be required when a dual carriageway is constructed.

I though it was a fence for the kids to tag. They are almost running out of other spaces to tag. Great welcome to our beautiful little town a giant tagged fence.

Should get a local artist to paint a koala mural on it so people know what it's for, creating awareness at the same time. Another tagged wall that needs to be muralled is the one on ewingsdale Rd near the hospital

Here's your answer Scott Clifford

Dee Dee Diona 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Ben Hornery

Best solution to reduce the graffiti tagging on the timber - provide a green screen in front- a row of local native shrubs planted in front for little cost will in a few years screen off the wall from view and taggers will be less interested.

Kim Baber, Leeanne Hall, Tara Derighetti, this is what I was telling you about at lunch !!!

Shame you don’t mow the roundabouts and clean it all up - it’s a mess

Helen Watson

Who will maintain this grid when it falls in and becomes a traffic hazard like almost all the other roads in the shire

*when* a dual carriageway is required?

Bridgette Bond you need to join the council next election

Can someone please explain to me how they actually work given the grid only goes to the edge of the road. I’m pretty sure Koalas can walk around an obstacle

Matt Lee

Koalas are smart and can follow the signs

Hadyn Serone

Such a shame some scumbags spray painted there wannabe gang tags all over it. How about a community movement to rid these so called youth gangs making a mess of our community.

Sounds like the rms has lost the plot. As if a koala is going to cross under the road let alone walk klms to the cross where the grid is.

That’s not going to stop them dropping is it 😜

Can’t fix all the pot holes on the main road into Byron but we can put a cattle grid in for a koala... farkn typical council wasting money

Byron shire council would be the worst in Australia for sure......

The Koalas at Belongil will be extinct 10 hit in 3 days last week !!

You’ve done the worst job with the grids. You should of done speed bumps with tunnels under the road And also fences to direct the koalas if that’s what it even for. I’ve never seen koalas In That location. It’s not like the koalas are gonna see a grid and go under it they can’t read signs.

The new drive over grid makes me jump every time! Clattery and hard. The koalas will die in fright.

I think it's a p.r. excersise to deny removing habitat is what kills koalas.
