I READ with in­ter­est the ar­ti­cle Tweed’s plan to save the koalas (Aug 30, 2017)

I note this ar­ti­cle does not give credit where credit is due. The lo­cal State MP, Ge­off Provest, is the per­son who has pushed long and hard for this to come to fruition. It was not Tweed Shire Coun­cil or Cur­rumbin Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary push­ing for this, it was our Na­tional Party State MP Ge­off Provest. Just re­mem­ber Cur­rumbin Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary is in Queens­land.

To sim­ply say the NSW Govern­ment shows a to­tal lack of re­spect on the part of the reporter for the per­son re­spon­si­ble for en­sur­ing this project has got­ten off the ground.

The ar­ti­cle in our Au­gust 30 edi­tion was a fol­low-up to

our front page story on Satur­day (Aug 26) about the an­nounce­ment, in which Mr Provest was ac­knowl­edged and NSW En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Gabrielle Up­ton ex­ten­sively quoted. We ran a fol­low-up ar­ti­cle due to the sig­nif­i­cance of the an­nounce­ment. —Ed­i­tor
