Save the Great Barrier Reef
This is my reminder to myself and anybody else who will listen that to save important Eco-systems we must act on Climate Change NOW.
Well lockdown on the Central Coast is a real stinker. The weather is beautiful and the scenery is pretty awesome. Because I am a hermit it has been easy to stay away from people, although there are heaps of people walking their dogs. I keep muttering under my breath at them for getting in the way but remind myself that they are in the same situation as me.
I tell myself if I am going to be a hermit I need to zen out a bit. But I hope you enjoy some of my photos.
Pretty In Pink
If you love walking and fantastic views then this is the place for you. The park stretches just north of the Hawkesbury River and to Gosford and the adjacent coast. It takes in the pretty township of Patonga and these photos were taken on the headland above Patonga.
There are lots of easy walks in the park and some difficult ones. These photos were taken not 20 metres from my car so its great for those that find walking difficult. From now till summer the wildflowers put on a bit of a show. These are some of the early ones.

I forgot the photo. My comments make a lot more sense when you see this great photo that was on Lucas Odom’s blog

This is the first thing I saw this morning. I am grateful to Jonah Joyce for publishing this photo.
One of the nice things about being a blogger is you wake in the morning and get overwhelmed with all the wonderful photos fellow bloggers have put up while you were sleeping.
It is nice to see that the world keeps turning when you are in lock down.
In 1981 the Great Barrier Reef was listed as World Heritage. It was in the same year the then Liberal Government of Malcolm Fraser established the Human Rights Commission. Both enduring and significant acts of a Liberal government.
UNESCO are due to meet about whether to place the Great Barrier Reef as “in Danger’ but this Liberal government is attempting to stop that proposal going ahead. Whether it does or doesn’t it is testimony to the fact that this government plays politics even with the most important of decisions.
Regardless of UNESCO’s decision it doesn’t alter the fact that the Great Barrier Reef is IN DANGER.
Only we the Australian people can save the Reef because our government wont. We must demand action on climate change now.
