Lend Lease lends a big hand to Mossman Rocks Crocodiles not the only endangered species
Dear Sir, We are so pleased that our Community thoroughly enjoyed the Mossman Rocks on October 22 and many talented acts were showcased.
The Mossman Rocks event was completely organised and established through the Mossman Community Centre. We had several partners, notably the Lend Lease Springboard program facilitated by Impact International, who worked with us on this project.
Seven successful projects were completed this year with the Springboard program; Mossman Rocks was one of them.
Every project was organised by a group of volunteers and chaired by a member of our staff or management.
There were a number of volunteers in this group who worked the whole 5 month program to ensure that this project achieved a great level of success. Dear Sir, Is it any wonder that tourism is suffering in North Queensland?
Now Fat Albert has ’gone’ it is difficult enough to spot a crocodile in the wild.
The koala is on the endangered list and they are not native to North Queensland, so we have wallabies and a few cassowaries left and maybe you’d be lucky enough to spot a platypus?
I’ve been in Australia since 1953 and have never seen one in the wild, only in captivity.
I’ve travelled most of the Australian outback being married to a surveyor from Western Australia.
Africa has a list of wild animals as long as your arm including crocodiles a-plenty and game parks and reserves to view and photograph the wild life.
We have dolphins and whales, but too many tourists are invading their territories and will surely put on end to them in the not too far away future!
