Yesterday I received an email from Cassandra, a MWA volunteer that started like this ...
We have just returned from a painstakingly amazing Bluesfest ... let me assure you that every single person I spoke to (around 400) was outraged and devastated at the proposed Ella Bay development and signed a letter to Garrett expressing so.
Well that was great news, I would be lucky to talk to 400 people in a year! The energy and dedication displayed by marine biologist Blanche Danastas and her team is inspiring to say the least. They’ve only just returned from the Bluesfest and have already organized a fundraiser in Townsville tonight for the MWA Ella Bay campaign.
I must be getting old as my idea of a recovery period after the Byron Bluesfest would be intensive sleep therapy coupled with some fairly major rest and relaxation.
I wish MWA a successful night and thank them for their work to protect this special habitat and the many unique species that call Ella Bay home.
