If this were just unique to Peel Island one might say, it is just about erosion and over use. The same scenario can be seen at Coochiemudlo Island, Flinders Beach and Blakesley’s, Minjerriba. Rising sea levels are real and palpable. Perhaps the loss of residential and resort seaside property to the ocean and depreciating land values will spur government and corporations to cap pollutant emissions into the environment.
