Native Dog Ck in Essington SF near Oberon closed to fossicking
Seems they found some booroolong frogs

Can zoom in on this map link https://fcnsw.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=db08e563e1b6403fabde1ce901389fa2

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Interesting thing is there is no mention of fossicking causing a problem in any of the articles in local papers.

see page 19 of the National plan https://www.environment.gov.au/system/files/resources/bb38ec60-bdea-43db-8fbd-4b28a0af6fca/files/litoria-booroolongensis.pdf
The effefts of the plan seem to also include farming water use and forestry.

In NSW it is a 10 year plan https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55b839c6e4b0a286c4c4a481/t/5b2b2ef16d2a73a146f28779/1529556874958/David+Coote.pdf

Sorry got wound up  :-[

Used to sieve a Native Dog donkeys years ago, a pleasant lazy spot that always looked good. 

Noticed the frogs and other wild life and kept clear of them. Could certainy hear the frogs at night while you tried to sleep.

Only been back once for a look since the high bankers hit the area (on line videos attracted too many diggers) and the area was opened again after logging finished.
Now highbankers are banned state wide affects of fossicking are greatly reduced.
Did not stay or walkabout long as brown snakes were getting active.

Sad to see another area lost. From reading the reports it will not be the last  :'(

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Not in the area I used to go in if one was spotted it was removed, Willow trees however are a problem.
In a different section of the forest with Brisbane Valley Ck it was over run with brambles and blackberry bushes.

So true about more closures Jerry... They are going through everywhere where Fossicking is allowed.... Some great places are on the cards to close due to past activities....

1977 to 1987 the recommended herbicides for invasive weeds had warnings written on the back of the container about the use of these chemicals around wet lands.
It would be interesting to see if there is any correlation.
