As emphasized many times by prof. Richard Hobbs in his presentation on urban bushlands: There is too many people loving nature and unique Australian biodiversity but very few eager to influence the decision politics obsessed with economical growth make. As a result we have crowds of people coming to the wildflower walks organized by Murdoch Branch of Wildflower society of WA as the remnant bushlands become smaller and smaller:


And everyone is genuinely interested in what is on offer around here. Our guide Eddy Wajon explaining:


Wildflower Walks organized by passionate naturalists from Murdoch Branch attracted nearly 300 attendees this 2015 Winter. See for yourself by clicking on the Event Pages that document the popularity of the walks:

lot of effort and arguments were put in place before proposed Keane Road extension was stopped and the remnant bush land was saved from the hands of the developers. It is obvious for ecologist and naturalists that we should not let any of this precious diversity be lost but on the other hand though I have captured today this ¨happy¨ couple checking their block where their future house will be built…



It looks like there is not much time left until the urban areas squeeze onto the last natural jewels of The Anstey-Keane Dampland.

Road to Bush

Developers start from cutting the road through the last pieces of bushland (Keane Road above & Skeet Road below):

Skeet Road

..and quickly fill up the adjacent space with products that couples are willing to sign their life away to:

Future Suburb

As Marilyn points out the “Bush Forever” sign is already missing:
