The City of Gosnells has given a clear indication to students at Southern Grove Primary School that their efforts to protect local wildlife are valuable – by providing quenda crossing signs to the school.
Students participating in the school’s Eco Warriors program requested the signs after noticing a number of dead quendas on Southern River roads.
Mayor Terresa Lynes was pleased to support the students in their endeavour.
“Our City encompasses biodiversity hotspots and many Bush Forever sites, home to plants and animals that are not found anywhere else in the world,” she said.
“The Eco Warriors at Southern Grove Primary School are to be applauded for their efforts and I hope this sparks the start of a lifetime of being involved in community projects.”
The students will be moving the signs around to quenda hotspots to remind drivers to slow down and watch for wildlife on the roads.
