Climate Change

Rising sea levels have resulted in increasing major floods over most of the Little Shoal Bay reserve. The main field (Dudding) has been the most visibly affected.  Some of that field is also sinking as water infiltration increases.

Two solutions have so far been suggested:

  1. Do nothing, and let the area gradually be reclaimed by the sea.

  2. Build bunds around the perimeter of the affected areas and build up the level of the field. (It seems that soil would be available from other Council works.)

Do you favour either of these suggestions?  If so, which one, and why?

OR

Do you have another suggestion?  Please advise.
