Catastrophic Loss of Natural and Man-made Resources
The whole Lamington Natural History Association ‘family’ is totally devastated by the damage caused by the recent bush fires in and around Lamington National Park. Not only was much of the heritage listed Binna Burra Lodge destroyed, at least three of our members were among the many Upper Beechmont residents who lost their houses.
The skeletal remains of one LNHA members’ house
Steve Noakes, LNHA vice president and chairman of the Binna Burra Lodge Board of Directors has pledged that the Lodge will be rebuilt. Although the staff has been reduced from seventy to a mere skeleton of seven, a temporary office has been set up and bookings will soon be taken to start from April 2020.
One of our members, Dr Ronda Green, has started an emergency wildlife feeding program for our furry and feathered friends displaced and starving after the fires. She has consulted experts in the field to ensure the feeding program does not encourage feral cats and even currawongs, which are notorious predators of small vertebrates.
