Court case update

On March 28 MCG launched legal action against Minister for the Environment Greg Hunt over his decision to approve the dredging and dumping of dredge spoil for the Abbot Point coal terminal. We had our first day in court on 2nd May, in the Brisbane Federal Court with Judge Dowsett sitting for a 'directions hearing', essentially a chance for all parties to propose timelines.

'Wow: A Day Out!'

Over 65 Mackayites gathered for our Beautiful Places Walk off the coast of Shoal Point on Sunday March 30.

The day started with a picnic and then local Morrie Pearson led the group over the sands and towards Little Green Island at low tide. We saw a wonderful array of wildlife including a variety of soft and hard corals (including one affectionately named 'blobby'), crabs, shells and birds.

The event was covered by Channel 7 and the Daily Mercury. The pictures below say it all! For more pictures go to the Mackay Conservation Group facebook page.
