Myra Larcombe, nee Lane, ran the launch service prior to the Fuller's operation; she has lived in the Bay for most of her life and we should heed her wise words. The letter below ran in the Bay Chronicle on 11/11/2010. We hope to obtain an oral history of her experience of abundance of birds and fish in the bay in time's past.

 

We the people of this nation have let this happen through our ignorance and apathy. Education programmes (eg EMR), seminars, films and important memories such as this letter help us understand our oceans and what should be there. Campaigns such as Fish Forever enable us to focus our efforts and initiate change.
