Creating a web of green

Brisbane has some hidden natural areas that could be wonderful places to visit in the future. One is the Parklands at Myrtletown at the mouth of the Brisbane River. It has some of the most important saltmarsh ecosystems and beach vegetation in Brisbane, but the site is unprotected without fencing for 4wd impacts. Recently the assault on this fragile coastal parkland has intensified with destruction becoming widespread. It is time now for the State Government (owners) and the Brisbane City Council (land managers) to protect this parkland. Brisbane’s environment is at the mercy of “users and abusers” it appears.
