Kia ora neighbours. Auckland Council is investigating after receiving a report of a wallaby at Long Bay Regional Park.

The council will conduct a thermal imaging drone survey after a park volunteer claimed to have seen the wallaby, head of natural environment delivery Phil Brown​ said.

Wallabies are considered a pest under the Regional Pest Management Plan. It is illegal to breed, sell, move or exhibit them without a permit under the Biosecurity Act 1993.

There are wallaby populations in the Bay of Plenty, Waikato and South Canterbury areas and on Kawau Island in the Hauraki Gulf, however they are not established in mainland Auckland.

If there is a wallaby at the park, Brown said it was likely it would have been taken there by people.

“Given the seclusive nature of the wallaby, making it difficult to detect, and the significant threat they pose to our native biodiversity and primary production, the most efficient and effective course of action should a wallaby be detected is to shoot the animal.”

HOUSING INTENSIFICATION

Today, on my way from work I witnessed another of the now normal projects in progress. I couldn't help but cringe at the sight of beautiful brown, rich, life sustaining soil being scraped off the section to make way for a concrete/ building base. I am unashamedly a person of the earth and it just looks and feels like Mother Nature is being abused. I can't help thinking we are no better than those burning the Amazon or who engage in other activities which desecrate the earth. Once upon a time there was at least some recycling of building materials by demolition companies. Now, dwellings get bulldozed and end up in landfill. Very hypocritical from councils, the government and Greens to let this happen.
