To ensure current Yankalilla council dog by-laws remain in force at Myponga Beach.

This petition had 382 supporters

Recently Yankalilla Council developed and implemented dog by-laws on Myponga Beach. These laws were implemented for many reasons.

Please read why these by-laws were enacted on the District Council of Yankalilla web page,

One of the many reasons was to ensure that the Hooded Plovers nesting on the beach will be protected to improve their chances of reproduction and survival.  There are very few nesting pairs of Hooded Plovers left in South Australia so consequently they are listed as a Vulnerable species.  These remaining pairs have few nesting sites on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Myponga Beach is one of the few. 

These by-laws do not prevent dog owners from exercising their dogs on Myponga Beach itself - please see the "Myponga Beach Controls" PDF file located on the right hand side of the web page listed above. The by-laws  restrict dogs being exercised off a leash during certain hours of a few spring and summer months and defines an area where leashes are required to be used at all times.

There are a few members of the public who are now opposing these by-laws.  These by-laws were only recently implemented after a public notification period and they are very similar to those in place all through the Adelaide coastal region.

If you believe these current Yankalilla Council dog by-laws should remain please sign this electronic petition.  By doing so you will also help to ensure Hooded Plovers maintain an important, less disturbed nesting area on Myponga Beach.
