Plant guards and timber stakes taken from Cuttagee Point

Cuttagee headland plantings 2016

Bega Valley Shire Council have expressed their frustration following the theft of plant guards and timber stakes from the Cuttagee Point revegetation project, which is being undertaken by Bermagui Dune Care with assistance from Council.

The project is replanting native vegetation on some of the cleared areas of the headland to provide habitat for wildlife, and to improve the look and feel of the rugged coastal environment.

The guards and stakes were bought using a Council grant, and without them the young plants are unlikely to survive in the harsh coastal position.

Council has described the act as selfish and are asking anyone with information regarding the theft to contact them.
