LETTERS: Councillors should do more about local conservation

RECENTLY I was pleased to see two kookaburras in our backyard.

They have apparently avoided chainsaws and bulldozers that have destroyed much of that iconic species habitat.

Despite this I commend the council for their stance on conservation in our region, although I do believe they could allocate more land.

The preservation of indigenous ancestoral graves in Deebing Heights was a very welcome gesture.

But, why develop Deebing Heights at all, why not leave us this precious space.

And of course, the trifecta that no one really wants - the silly Tony Tales of the daily Brisbane newspaper.

MICHAEL DANAHER, Silkstone
