Parliamentary Questions


Question Without Notice No. 773 asked in the Legislative Council on 31 August 2022 by Hon Sophia Moermond

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

BUNBURY OUTER RING ROAD — BLACK COCKATOOS

773. Hon SOPHIA MOERMOND to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Transport:

My question without notice for which some notice has been given is to the minister representing the Minister for Environment.

(1) How many hollows were blocked to prevent breeding, as per the Black cockatoo action management plan for the Bunbury Outer Ring Road?

(2) Were any of the 13 trees identified with nest hollows not blocked?

(3) Were any of these hollows identified as having occupation of eggs and/or chicks as per the preclearing fauna assessment?

(4) Has a suitably experienced zoologist or environmental scientist been identified who is on site during clearing of breeding habitat to maintain radio communication with machinery operators and halt clearing if necessary?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I am giving the member this answer representing the Minister for Transport. The member referred to the Minister for Environment. It may have been transferred between offices. In any event, it was the same question.

(1)–(3) No hollows have been blocked or had any sign of use.

(4) Fauna specialists are on site during clearing.
