We were horrified to find over 60 trees cut down in the precious monsoon forest at Rapid Creek (listen to ABC Radio Breakfast story, also on ABC Facebook and in Sun Newspaper). Many of the trees were just left lying on the ground. Alderman Justine Glover from Waters Ward said "Rapid Creek is such a precious, unique environment that we all need to be responsible for ... if you see something report it … we have to protect this magic place." Kate Worden Member for Sanderson said "I am really disappointed to see such a senseless act and urge people to be vigilant." Destruction of trees at Rapid Creek is becoming more common. If you see it happening call the police (NT Police on 13 1444, or AFP on 13 1237 for land on the airport).
