An Island in Suburbia: The Natural and Social History of Toohey Forest
Toohey Forest, one of the last substantial areas of natural habitat within the growing sprawl of urban Brisbane, has been the focus of an increasing whirl of activity: more research and knowledge of its ecology; further clearing of parts of the forest to make way for ever-encroaching human activities; a growing body of people acting to protect what is left and to educate others about the forest’s value: and an increasing administrative and beaurocratic effort aimed at resolving the seemingly irreconcilable goals of retaining the forest’s natural qualities versus financial profit and short-term expediency.
