AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

This one is at Rosebud beach...

That's wonderful to see!

That sign has a good message. Monofilament fishing line does considerable damage to wildlife in the oceans, so having a place to put is is perfect.

Great to remind folks - fishing lines are dangerous to wildlife.

I hope people obey the sign. The fishing line can do so much damage to wildlife. :(

Lesley said...

I don't fish, so I would never have thought of this.

It is so dangerous to birds. Every pier should have a box like this.

This sign is a good idea! We need some here in Florida.
