Fame Cove vandalism

After listening to the heavy equipment on the eastern shore of North Arm Cove we took the opportunity to take a few closer photos from our boat. There is a siltation fence below the main cleared area but there is a lot of fresh earth below the fence, so the fence would not prevent contaminated runoff in heavy rain.

The view from Fame Cove is similiar. There is a fresh road running nearly straight up the hiilside with no siltation controls visible from the water. Any steep road running straight up a hill would be subject to significant erosion...

When I first began visiting North Arm Cove I heard stories of koalas within the village and that someone was keeping a record of local koala sightings. But then for years it seems we had no new sightings in the village. In my walks in the bush around the Cove I've looked in vain for signs of koalas. I was, with sorrow, quite prepared to accept that there were no more Cove koalas. That was until this past week.

NSW koalas were placed on the vulnerable species list in 2012. Urban development across the state has led to habitat...
