Toondah Harbour: Save the Bay

Private real estate developers want to build 3600 apartments on important Ramsar wetlands and migratory shorebird habitat at Toondah Harbour.

CR Critically Endangered (CR)

Together we will Save Toondah Harbour

As well as being habitat for critically endangered Eastern Curlew and other migratory shorebirds, Toondah Harbour is a Ramsar listed wetland. If Walker Corporation’s proposal goes ahead it will undermine global wetland protection.

Together, we lodged over 16,000 comments to Walker Corporation’s draft EIS opposing the development! 

While we certainly should all be proud of this achievement the campaign to save the Ramsar wetlands and threatened bird habitat at Toondah Harbour will continue.

The onus moves to Walker Corporation to compile and respond to all the comments they have received over the last two months and prepare a final EIS report.  We expect Walker Corporation to submit this final EIS report to the Federal Minister for the Environment for a final assessment sometime next year.
