Bob Brown Foundation joins calls for limit on Cradle Mountain tourism avalanche

Environmentalist Bob Brown has backed calls for a limit on the avalanche of tourists descending on the Dove Lake lookout at Cradle Mountain.

“With plans for up to 550 people an hour spewing off the proposed cable car at Dove Lake, the area is facing serious loss of its natural values.  The proposed Dove Lake Viewing Shelter is a recipe for degradation of one of the most beautiful precincts on Earth,” Bob Brown said.

The Bob Brown Foundation has recommended an alternative to the Hodgman Government which includes limiting numbers and re-siting the DLVS behind the hill on which it is proposed to sit.

“However, this will confront tourists with a prospect of a truly natural experience,” Brown added.
