Save the Turtles at Garvey Park Wetlands

We, the undersigned, say that Lot 603 Fauntleroy Avenue Ascot (DA8) not be developed, but rather be recognised for its social, heritage and environmental importance as a pivotal component of the Garvey Park wetland and artery of the greater Swan River itself.
This key tract of wetland supports a natural environment of one of the most ecologically important trees in the metropolitan region the “Eucalyptus Rudis” (only 15 left in this parcel) which in turn supports various species of birds, reptiles, long neck turtles and a range of ever diminishing migratory animals due to development.
It should also be noted that this wetland serves as it has in the past as a drain from the airport and in the past has been key to stopping any harmful agents from reaching the Swan River.
Now we ask the Legislative Assembly to urge the Planning Minister and the Environment Minister to work with all relevant parties to ensure extensive and appropriate community consultation is undertaken to ensure that the wetland land environment is maintained and rezoned to be protected and preserved as the extremely important part of the natural parkland that it is today.
