International wetlands face golf course threat

TEC has called for protection of internationally important wetlands near Botany Bay, threatened by a new golf course.  The Cook Cove South Precinct development is also targeting public open space for private use.

"This private golf course which will take over a public park wants to clear important wetland vegetation and will surround an area visited by migratory species causing ongoing pollution and disturbance.  An area of such importance should be managed by a conservation body and enhanced because so much has already been lost," said Jeff Angel, Executive Director of the Centre.
