Nin­ga­loo sur­veys re­leased

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Man­agers of two sta­tions on the Nin­ga­loo Coast have re­leased their own land man­age­ment sur­veys to ad­dress what they claim are short­com­ings in a State Gov­ern­ment­backed sur­vey into fu­ture ac­cess and man­age­ment of the coastal strip.

The Depart­ment of Parks and Wildlife is look­ing at op­tions to im­prove fa­cil­i­ties and ac­cess to the coast­line bor­der­ing Nin­ga­loo and War­roora Sta­tions which is man­aged by the sta­tion own­ers them­selves.

The plan would in­clude DPaW tak­ing over man­age­ment of the coast and tourism in­fra­struc­ture, which both sta­tions are op­posed to be­cause it has been a sup­ple­men­tary form of in­come to them.

Phil Ken­drick, part­ner of Nin­ga­loo Sta­tion man­ager Jane Le­froy, told the Pil­bara News the cur­rent, un­de­vel­oped na­ture of the coast was a unique tourism at­trac­tion which should not be changed and that the coast had been kept in pris­tine con­di­tion with­out hav­ing to spend any tax­payer money to date.

DPaW has ar­gued their plan would im­prove tourism in the re­gion and al­low for bet­ter man­age­ment plans to be put in place on the World Her­itage-listed coast.

The new sur­vey and DPaW sur­vey are both avail­able on the Save Nin­ga­loo Sta­tion Face­book page.
