Restoring our natural environment
Councillor Hermann Vorster is passionate about protecting the local natural environment. He has restored wetlands, created new habitats, planted thousands of new trees and led efforts to eliminate pests from our waterways. A particular focus has been the protection of native bird life, including Black Swans.
Councillor Hermann Vorster said council officers had been asked to identify potential [Koala conservation] sites.
“There needs to be enough land that would support the existing population and additional land that could be rehabilitated overtime to produce food,” he said.
“I think there would be widespread support for this work and the declaration of a ‘Borobi Reserve’ would reflect council’s underlying support for getting the balance right.”
