Gecko poo on a white A4 doesn't make the gecko poo a white page. The World Heritage Area contains Magnetic Island where the World Heriatge Marine Park is to the low water level such as at the toe of the Nelly Bay Groyne wall. The groyne does not enter the World Heritage Marine Park. I hope to have dopies of the pdf letter available at the MIRRA meeting tomorrow. Regards,

Mike Schmidt, Nelly Bay.

Mike, as revealed in a different part of this thread, the Marine Park boundary at the low water mark in Nelly Bay is NOT a World Heritage Area boundary. You are simply mistaken in your interpretation. The only place where the low water mark is a common boundary for both the Marine Park and the World Heritage Area is along the mainland coast. All islands within the World Heritage Area are themselves World Heritage Areas.

Who told Maurie that Magnetic Island was World Heritage.

Who led the Island delegation?

Who are the members of that delgation?

Before a delegation does anything, shouldn't they have the backing of the community? Why the secret dealings with Council?

Charly, I have ever given you respect that you might do the right thing...... this scenario is thick with sinister cohersion of a somewhat innocent Maurie Soars. Fancy telling him we are World Heritage! We all know we are a National Park and Freehold Island in a World Heritage Marine Park.

If there is a story to be told tell the truth for a start!

Resectfully,

Mike Schmidt, Nelly Bay.

Councillor Soares probably read about it on the Australian Government's GBR World Heritage Area website which states:

"The World Heritage Area extends from the top of Cape York in north-east Australia to just north of Bundaberg, and from the low water mark on the Queensland coast to the outer boundary of the Marine Park, which is beyond the edge of the continental shelf.

About 99 per cent of the World Heritage Area is within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

The remaining one per cent includes:

  • some 980 islands which are under Queensland jurisdiction

  • some internal waters or Queensland (for examples, some deep bays, narrow inlets or channels between islands)

  • intertidal areas protected by Queensland legislation

  • a number of small…

The proposed amendments to Council by-laws "include provisions to protect native animals on Magnetic Island from wandering cats", with cat specific changes "suggested to include no new cats on the Island, the desexing of all cats currently approved, not allowing cats to visit the island and enforcement of cats being contained in a house or cat enclosure". The chair of the Committee, Councillor Maurie Soars has been quoted as saying changing the policy around cats on the World Heritage listed island was a "no-brainer".

If you want to take your current, desexed cat with you when you exercise away from your house you can do so with a lead, just like dog owners do. If you allow your cat to…

Loneliness is common, affecting around 1 in 3 adults. Pets, provide constant companionship and unconditional love – plus their need to be kept active gets you out of the house for essential exercise when you’re feeling down,

We all know that Care for Nature starts at home and that includes how to love and care for our pets. I imagine many a vet gets their inkling to animal welfare at an early age by caring for the family pets including horses, pigs, and chickens etc.

How are we going to teach our children the very basics to animal welfare? Who are the future Wildlife carers? Who are the future Bungalow Bay animal carers?

Who cares if the bushfires run rampant?…

Mike, thanks for supplying me with a copy of the 2004 Chadwick letter. Your statement about its content is very misleading. You wrote that Chadwick explained to you that, "Magnetic Island is not World Heritage. It is an Island inside a WH Marine Park." You must have known that this is not true and that her letter said nothing of the sort. What Ms Chadwick actually wrote was:

"All areas within this boundary [the low water mark coast, the continental shelf] , including all islands such as Magnetic Island, are within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area."

Clearly you are mistaking the Marine Park, which does not include any islands, for the GBR World Heritage Area which includes all…
