Ecologists have expressed their outrage and shock at ecocide being committed on the Bridgewater Canal at Pomona in the name of tow-path “improvement”
Naturalist Ian Boote on manchesterbirding.com says “There has been some “improvements” here in the form of a new tow path which has obliterated all the rare plants on this stretch, losses on this stretch of the Bridgewater Canal tow-path include Ivy Leaved Broomrape, a possible unique site for this plant in Greater Manchester, Deadly Nightshade, very rare in Greater Manchester, Water Dock, Blue Fleabane, Yellow Wort, Bee Orchid, Southern Marsh Orchid, Common Eyebright, Common Century, Hemlock Water Dropwort, Common Mullion, Garden angelica, White Campion, Hop Trefoil, Ramping Fumitory, Common Storksbill and Amphibious Bistort”
Ecocide has been committed in the name of “improvements” and more ecocide is being planned for Pomona Docks, a truly disgusting state of affairs, when are our authorities and “business leaders” going to learn about green business practise ?
