The case against dogs on beaches
Tuesday, 17 March 2009
Egrets at Cabbage Tree Creek
One sign gives a clue why dogs are banned at Deeban Spit.

The sign located at Deban Spit and Constables Point areas which borders Maianbar and Bonnie Vale respectively. It states various restrictions on activities in the area including on dogs and are enforced by Council. The protections which are in place to protect migratory bird species are legislated under several international agreements with China (1986), Japan (1974) and Korea (2007).

Among the species protected are the Eastern Curlew which migrates 26,000 km from Siberia, the Bar-tailed Godwit which migrates from China, the great (or white) egret (pictured above at Cabage Tree Creek circa 1999) and the pied oyster-catcher.
