I'll be joining surfers and other ocean lovers this weekend to stand up and say NO to the sand mine extension planned for Lennox Head.
The proposed project is close to North Creek and the Newrybar Swamp drains and will affect the hydrology of the area by removing 3.6 million tonnes of sand from a low lying (wetland) area that is very susceptible to flooding. The disturbed acid sulphate soils will feed pollutants into North Creek and the already very sick Richmond River, and then into the ocean.
Wear blue and bring your signs for a photo.
Saturday, July 14 from 2pm-3pm, at Lennox Beach, between the pub and Shelter Cafe.
