 BEN: BEN Comes to Lota

Bayside Environmental NetworkBayside Creek Catchments The Bayside Environmental Network group (BEN), gathered together Saturday afternoon for the launch of a local subcommittee, the, “Bayside Creek Catchments,” group. This subdivision aims to focus on the Wynnum, Lota and lower Tingalpa Catchment areas. Working in co-operation with the Brisbane Shire Council, the Redlands Branch and Redlands Shire Council, these volunteer groups promote a healthy, native environment.

The support demonstrated on the day was immense, causing Councillor Helen Abrahams, chair of Environment and sustainability to comment that, “the launch shows the strong support of the community and the number of people attending was very rewarding.” She also stated that the, “Brisbane Council strongly support Catchment groups.”

There were educational displays to be seen, such as the Gecko’s Wildlife presentation who are invited to many Council Green days to teach about local species. BEN volunteers were also providing information on introduced plants and offering alternative native plant options. These alternatives can be purchased at places such as Indigi Scapes botanical gardens. A sausage sizzle and bush storytelling was also a main attraction.

The first meeting for the subcommittee, “Bayside Creek Catchments,” is to be held on Saturday 18th February at the RSL club from 2-4pm. A facilitator will be present to talk through the goals of the group and the committee members will be decided upon. All are welcome to attend as they are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join their ranks. The commitment and energy of these Catchment groups is impressive and the work they do for the environment, extensive, it is certainly a worthwhile cause.

 BEN: Federal Government Sea Pollution Review

Bayside Environmental NetworkDr Kemp, Federal Environment Minister, said in a recent statement that he has “declared marine debris to be a key treat to endangered species” and announced “a review into the effectiveness of local and state government laws aimed at curbing pollution.” Dr Kemp pointed to problems with plastic bags, abandoned fishing gear and solid waste dumped from ships. He went on to say the Plan will aim to improve stormwater management and install pollutant traps in waterways.

The Moreton Bay Environmental Alliance welcomes this statement but hopes that efforts will also continue in respect to the introduction of “sea friendly” biodegradable bait bags and the reduction in the use plastic packaging generally.

 BEN: Bayside Environment Network

Bayside Environmental NetworkOnce again I have to thank Bob Ashdown who kept his promise and on BEN’s behalf put in a very detailed submission opposing the proposal to put the Moreton Bay College Boys Campus at 258-302 Manly Road, Manly West. Thanks also to Dianne Cliffe who also put in an enormous amount of work producing the submission for the Manly West and Lota Community Association. These and those submitted by the other local environmental groups and those from individuals seem to have given the Council and the Herald some cause for reflection and, we hope, thorough investigation of our concerns. It is pleasing to see that a result is not expected before the New Year and that Federal Government approval is needed.
