The Big Scrub Rainforest Book
"The book contains contributions from writers, artists and photographers, and explores how the Big Scrub came to be, the ecological value it holds today, what it means to people and what its future might look like.
Only a few hundred years ago the Big Scrub was the largest continuous expanse of lowland subtropical rainforest in Australia, covering an area of 75,000 hectares around the present-day towns of Lismore, Ballina, Byron Bay and Mullumbimby. Today less than 1% of the former Big Scrub remains in scattered fragments of remnant rainforest. Its long-term survival is in doubt. These remnants are rich in diversity, supporting hundreds of species of flora and fauna and providing the only remaining habitat for some species."
