Murray-Darling Basin Breath
As we collectively hold our breath waiting for Federal Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities Tony Burke to finalise the Basin Plan and submit it to Parliament, there is plenty of news (good and bad) relating to the river system.
I’m sure each news story has merit, the truth is out there… in small chunks, but perception of the issue overall can become murky.
The River Murray is seeing some of the best flows in a long time, and things look peachy to the average eye – mine included. But amongst the good news of the River Red Gums saplings sprouting and great Murray Cod spawning conditions, there are still the issues we face… Carp in increasing quantities and possible El Nino on the way again.
We hold our breath. Read the news, take a breath, keep engaging in the discussion… and be sure to continue reading on to page 4 to see the beautiful photos of the Sacred Kingfisher rescued from the roadside last week. 🙂
With bated basin breath, Stuart Jones.
