Save forty hectares of forest in Jervis Bay from the bulldozer

The beautiful town of Callala in Jervis Bay is facing down a huge development proposal that would see some of the area's most biodiverse bushland bulldozed and replaced with suburbia. 
Sealark Pty Ltd, which is owned by the Halloran Trust, want to develop 380 lots in Callala, which would destroy 40.19 hectares of pristine bush that adjoins the Jervis Bay National Park. This bush survived the 2019-20 bushfires and is now a critical refuge for wildlife in the area whilst surrounding bushland fully recovers from the fire damage. 
Recent surveys show that it is an incredibly rich patch of forest, full of threatened species including the greater gliders and yellow-bellied gliders, grey-headed flying fox and gang-gang cockatoo.  
This proposal has not received consent yet, with the proponent requiring the land to be rezoned to allow it to be destroyed.  
Please make a submission before June 17 opposing this development to save our forests and its precious wildlife.
