Article entitled “Warrawong to close” by Daniela Frangos, The Weekender Herald, February 8, 2013, page 6.


Dr John Wamsley comments on the actions of the Adelaide Hills Council to enforce bush-fire measures that will bring about the demise of the iconic Warrawong Sanctuary.


It would seem that the council has won a long-standing tussle in the end  by exerting its enterprise ending authority; to their shame.


The losers are the people of South Australia, and the cause of conservation. Perhaps it will be another South Australian initiative adopted and successful interstate.
