The weed control in Tyagarah is being undertaken in accordance with the TAP. The TAP was publicly exhibited, submissions were received and considered and it was referred to the NSW Scientific Committee, established under the Threatened Species Conservation Act.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service has met representatives from the Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare Group on 12 July and 5 August, regarding restoring the biodiversity of Tyagarah Nature Reserve. We considered the proposal and during discussions no agreement could be reached.
A Review of the implementation of the TAP was undertaken and may be of interest to you and can be found at http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/bitouTAP/review.htm.
Thank you for your interest.
Ivory tower stuff, bureaucrats with no knowledge of the ecology on the ground.
And a reminder. More of us are concerned at the we know better than us mere mortals on the ground,
