BEWARE!!


These signs are on the side of the road as your drive west out of our little village. When I first moved here 12 years ago, most weeks you would see a koala wandering around on the roadside, as there is what is called a koala corridor in the bush west of the Tweed coast. However, since the construction of a new section of Pacific Highway west of the koala corridor, about four years ago, I have only seen one koala. This is what we all feared.....their disappearance.

That is so sad isn't it? Progress displaces animals.....thanks for stopping by. I hope all is well in your part of the world......just thinking of what plants I need to plant while you are probably winterizing!

I sympathise as I see a similar thing happening here in Sydney with Blue Tongue Lizards and birds. I've seen at least 4 lizards either run over or killed by dogs or cats in the past year and about 5 dead magpies fairly recently - poor innocent creatures!
