Lost and Found · Yellow-cheeked Cockatiel

Lost - $200 Reward Offered.

Bubby, our pearl, yellow-cheeked cockatiel accidentally flew away from our home on Lilydale Road on Sunday 4 February. 

Just 1.5 years old, hand-raised from 2 weeks of age as a family member, so very people orientated.  Does not bite.  Very affectionate with his family. 

If you have found him or see him please call Beck on 0439 136 150.   If he does land on you, please walk with him into an enclosed area/room before offering your hand (he would normally just step on) as he may be on edge. 

No tag/chip but has a very unique identifying mark that can be described in detail to prove ownership.   Thank you.

AHMAG · Effects of Mining on Water

For more than three years the Avon and Hills Mining Awareness Group (AHMAG) has been informing Avon Valley residents of the negative impacts of open-cut mining on the environment.

In consultation with environmental scientist Rosemary Madacsi, AHMAG graphic artist Sandra Harms has produced two images which clearly show what will happen to creeks and underground aquifers once the top layer of sand, gravel or bauxite is removed in the mining process.

Once the aquifers dry up and creek levels fall, trees die and the land becomes arid. Mine sites are exhausted within a few short years or decades, but the effects of mining our fragile environment will last forever.
