Woodlands Wetlands Trust - Mulligans Flat expansion

FOG response to on-line survey, 26 June 2016

Although we are in favour of expansion of the sanctuary, FOG is concerned that it should not be to the detriment of resources going into other woodlands and grassland conservation areas. We note that the sanctuary to date has been supported to a high degree from the ACT Government, and hope that in future many new costs can be covered externally, or at least that there is no reduction in funding for other conservation works by ACT Government as a result. We note that there is considerable action by the Trust to encourage donations, and that it has been very successfully undertaken by the National Arboretum.
