Wetland Web of Life

12 Oct

On Sunday, 14th September 2014, our daughter went with Peter and me to Centennial Park in Sydney. This is when I took all these pictures that you can see in this blog. Morse pictures from that day are in this post:

      Der Park ist wirklich sehr schön, liebe Gislinde. Wir sind dieses Jahr an der gleichen Stelle im Park vorbei gekommen wie voriges Jahr. So erinnerte ich mich, dass ich voriges an der gleichen Stelle schon einmal Bilder machte..

      Einige Bilder, die wir dieses Jahr machten, wo Matthew mit dabei war, kannst du hier finden:

    It’s beautiful to see our wetlands being maintained around Australia, it’s very important that we maintain them in the drier parts of our country, we have a few wet lands here but they must be monitored closely, due to the Summer months and the tendency to dry up, it causes a lot of trouble to our natural flora and fauna, especially the bird life. Hopefully this Summer will be kind to them.
    Cheers.

      The way I understand it, Ian, is, that the Centennial Park ponds suffer from stormwater pollution. This is why it is very important to maintain a natural balance of plant life and animal life. They say that some of the smallest creatures in the ponds are the most important.
      In 1887 hundreds of unemployed men were enlisted to turn the area into parkland. If this work had not been done then, who knows what the area would look like now?
      Up until the 1880s the Centennial Park wetlands, then known as Lachlan Swamps, supplied the growing Sydney colony with drinking water through a tunnel, called Busby’s Bore. In the 1880s it had to be closed down due to drought and pollution.
      I find it interesting that people can find out about all this just by looking at some information that is displayed in the park.
