Dreging in open ocean on the gold coast killing reef life.

I thought spewing dredge crap into the ocean was illegal????
Now there is no way this was not let happen by either the gold coast council or the local govenrment.
They rave on about how they are about protecting the ocean and there you see it, oh hang on, you would not see it, the dredge stopped and left around15 mins after sunrise, we got out off palm beach before sunrise so we were thee only boat out there at this stage, well there was the dredge of course, the bar was a bit nasty.
So from night to sunrise dredging, most folks would not have a clue their ocean was being so badly treated by the ones we pay to look afetr it.
Cunning hey, leave before most folks get out of bed and no one is the wiser, well we are!
The ocean was soup!!!!!
Out in 60 feet of water and in the shallows, a few feet vis at seeing shapes,sort of, actual vis was 2 to 4 inches, nearly!!
Straight after i took the video and photos it left!
This area is between Currumbin bar and Tallebudgera bars, both have sewerage treatment plants and houses on the waters, can you imagine was is in that sediment that has been dredged up and let loose in the ocean.

That's absolutely rediculous? Are you writing to your local MP about it with the pictures? Looking for an explanation? I sincerely hope so.

Mate back in the 80s I use to organise so many petitions about environmental issues including the future warmer waters predicted that will bleach the reef and none did any good.
My wide did all my paper work lol.

In the early 80s the world had a 50 percent heat related bleaching of corals event and it was in the Sunday paper, but no one remembers it, that set me off, and achieved nothing!!
I still have some of my old paper work from when we would walk the shops and streets to get signatures, what a waste of time and energy!
The prawn trawlers and the net excluders was the only one that worked and that was with heaps of help.
The gov does not give a shit!!!!!! oh and they are liars!!!!

They do it this way, the easy way to shut up know nothings is to stop anchoring that may help 4 corals and let climate change kill thousand of ks of corals.
Can't fight that way of thinking!

Back when marine parks were being considered and green zones, I called the govs head marine biologist and he agreed with me, they have it all wrong.
And of course the marine conservation society, you knew more about the ocean when you were 6 years old, then they ever will!

Send those photos to a TV station mate and see what they say. Sometimes when it gets that sort of exposure shit gets done in a hurry. They dredge here all the time and then they wonder why the grass beds in The Chesapeake Bay are dying. This sort of thing makes my Irish blood boil!!!
