Whilst there are problems all along the western shoreline of Kooringal it is easiest to show where the erosion is happening most dramatically.
Shown below is how erosion and human behaviour is negatively impacting on the vegetation on our shoreline and immediate surrounds.
Roots exposed and damaged
These photos are shown from the road side of the bank.
How can we expect these trees to survive and do their job of protecting the settlement from erosion, if people continue to drive over the root systems, hit the trees and break off branches with vehicles and other equipment?
