Members of the Sutherland Group, APS NSW have been involved in monitoring populations of Prostanthera densa in the Royal National Park for the NSW Save Our Species program. This final report supersedes the four progress reports previously posted here.
Spring Gully, Bundeena
A developer has lodged a development application to build an eco-lodge at Spring Gully, Bundeena, which is a 5.6 hectares area of magnificent gully bushland adjoining the Royal National Park. It has also applied to build an access road through the National Park in order to access the site. The Sutherland Group of APS NSW is opposed to the development and the proposed road access which will have an impact on threatened species habitat and endangered ecological communities.
Sutherland Group APS NSW made a submission on 3 December 2013 to the Review of Weeds Management in NSW by the National Resource Commission.
