Well it's a big step in the right direction for the Council to have now erected a sign at the Charles Street access point to the Shoal Bay shell bank and spit. This sign shows the area as a Wildlife area and also points out that dogs should be on a leash.
Shoal Bay is DOC designated as a Site of Special Wildlife Interest (SSWI)
It has been an issue for me and the Forest and Bird Team when we see dogs running lose and chasing birds that are trying to feed on the foreshore at different states of the tide.
I have photographed each of the 17 access points to the foreshore of the Shoal Bay estuary and look forward to seeing more wildlife signs helping to protect this excellent and important wildlife area.
Well done Auckland Council for getting on with this and thanks to all involved..
