More bad news for Iona's birds...

A new proposal is calling for BC Ferries to build a terminal at Iona Island. This would decimate critical bird habitat. With the filling in of the sewage ponds, the proposal for a new runway to run through the south jetty and now this, it's all just too much. You can read my previous post about what will happen to Iona HERE

There is way too much pressure on these birds. This is one of the best green spaces and wildlife habitats left in Richmond. I live in Richmond and the development never seems to stop. It's heartbreaking.

There will be public consultations soon on this and I'll post them when they become available. This is definitely something we as birders need to fight as we have been doing so for the Roberts Bank terminal expansion.
