Poisons and guns. I wonder which chemical company will profit.

Back to the lantana front.

Wind has calmed down and following a 29 degree day on Saturday, it is considerably cooler today. Saturday’s temperature’s is a early reminder of the summer to come and what we should prepare for. Save water now. Clear around my cabin site of any dry debris ect.

I climbed to our present work front which was strewn with branches, fallen sally wattles and general discards from tree tops. Good amount of dried wood which will quickly break down.

Below is our present work site. Scattered with various rain forest tree seeds over the last months, already some are sprouting.

Read some of the comments. J Lazarus, one of the better former Councilor’s makes some very valid points.

Urgent for NSW’s remaining habitat.

Strong land-clearing laws are often the only thing that stands between precious habitat for wildlife like koalas and a bulldozer.Yet the Baird government is determined to scrap these laws, putting our wildlife at risk.

Cracks are emerging in the government’s plan though. Scientists, conservationists and farmers have all slammed the plan and pressure is mounting on the government to go back to the drawing board.

You can be the line of defense for wildlife by getting your Member of Parliament on the case. Join thousands of NSW residents and send an urgent email to your MP now.

There’s not much time left to act. MPs will soon all meet in Sydney to decide the fate of the laws that protect wildlife, farmland and our climate from out-of-control land-clearing. We simply can’t afford to follow Queensland and increase land-clearing.

Let’s make sure they know that we, their electors, are watching and are prepared to act.

Happy Birthday KD.

Warm days and nights have brought the frogs out leaving clusters of spawn. The carpet snake below is partially shedding bits of its skin. Unusual and with the snake appearing thin, I wonder if its unwell.

Last of the turmeric and ginger harvest is on its way to a destination south. An incredible harvest from one turmeric planted 10 years ago. From it this year alone has seen 500 kilos sold.
