Kyabram man Aub Reddrop is trying to help revitalise Corop's Lake CooperFebruary 19, 2014 4:30am
When Kyabram man Aub Reddrop visited Lake Cooper at Corop just after Christmas for a spot of fishing, he quickly realised something needed to be done.
He was shocked at the lake’s rapidly receding shoreline and thoughts of a subsequent environmental disaster.
It immediately motivated him to try to do something about it.
He considered Lake Cooper needed water for a variety of reasons, with the environmental value at the top of a lengthy list.
He also believed it could be developed as a native fishery that district fishing clubs could support and help develop.
‘‘As an outdoor person and a shooter and a fisherman, this has been one of my favourite areas over the years. I thought it (environmental water to recharge the lake) was well worth fighting for,’’ the veteran said.
Aub immediately began sending letters to politicians and anyone else he thought may support environmental flows into the lake.
He has been pleasantly surprised with the interest he has achieved to date and the hearings and response he has got from nearly everyone.
‘‘There are plenty of environmental issues with the birdlife with its endangered species such as the Brolga that has to be considered,’’ he said.
