Featuring full details of the Herdsman Lake pelican rescue and deliberate oil spill. We are very concerned about this act of environmental vandalism and its danger to our fragile wildlife and the beautiful Herdsman Lake. Herdsman Lake is one of the few natural wetlands left in Perth, and we are fortunate to have it.
We are grateful for Channel 7, 9 and 10 and ABC, who all picked up the story. Since then, DWER has used drones to try and trace the source of the oil. We are immensely grateful for the vigilance shown by members of the public and the work that our tireless volunteers do to keep our water birds safe.
