Next Sunday September 6 is NATIONAL THREATENED SPECIES DAY and there will be stalls and displays at Fremantle’s Kings Square between 10 am and 4 pm, so go and visit and get more detailed information for example on how low the number of numbats is, etc.

BEAUTIFUL BIRDS OF FREMANTLE

Galah

The noisy pink galah cockatoos are back in Fremantle in big numbers and were having a lot of fun around Bathers Beach and the Espalanade on Sunday, with many eating on the railway track. This one did not like it when I got too close to take a photo, but it makes for a nice picture.

NATURE’S SIMPLE BEAUTY

It does not take much to create beauty. A stunning blue sky over Fremantle and a large flock of cockatoos is all that was needed for this photo.

SAVE THE KIMBERLEY. IT’S OUR BACKYARD!

Posted in australia by freoview on November 28, 2010

The PROTECT THE KIMBERLEY rally at the Cottesloe Civic Centre attracted around a thousand people, including Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt, on this stunning Sunday morning.

Speakers stressed the importance of the Kimberley as a unique heritage listed wildlife sanctuary that should not be destroyed by greedy multinational companies. Questions were raised as to why Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett is so desperately trying to get a huge industrial plant approved in such pristine location.

While participants in the rally were told not to sit on the heritage listed walls of the civic centre, a ranger could not be bothered to open the public toilets before the event, but had enough time to give tickets to cars parked on the verges. Very poor form Cottesloe! And, Mr Ranger, if you want to make a political point, go protest, write letters to newspapers, whatever, but don’t hinder those who have a democratic right to a peaceful rally and had permission to do so.
