Thanks for checking this Region out.

This Region is prepared on the a-political concept that if you are interested in 'place' in Australia, the most important aspect that defines 'place', is the 'flow of water'. The Senate is interested in 'place'.

This Region defines its boundaries at the top of the ridge, where water flows one way rather than the other. This leads to a very interesting 'place'.

We are seeking a debate with people who live in this proposed new Region. We know we've got the Region pretty well correct; after all, it's just geography. But if you live in this Region you can tell us a lot of interesting things.

- Do these boundaries define a place that is unique; different to every other Region in Australia? We think that that is probably quite likely.

- Is it a great place, worthy of recognition?

- Upon formation, what should be the name of this Region? Who would be the Lord Mayor? Who would be the two Senators who represent this Region? Who would be the additional Senator that represents the interests of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples in this region?

- Would life be enhanced if it was on a fast Ring-Rail that links the Capital City to every other Capital City in Australia? 

- Many other interesting things!

We think that this is a great new concept of regional statehood based on real concepts that define life in this particular Region. What do you think?

NOTE2: The red line is part of the original Aboriginal Australia Map © 1991. The black line is added by Bloggerme for discussion only. It shows the likely State boundary based on the flow of water only. As "the ridge" (See FOWTOR) naturally impacts on the development of the language, social or nation groups of the Indigenous people of Australia, the proposed border is often identical to the group boundary shown on the Aboriginal Australia Map. This is as was expected. Variations are social/historical & result in a particular language, social or nation group being represented in two adjoining States.

Other regional projections - CSIRO part of Southern & South-Western Flatlands region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See https://www.climatechangeinaustralia.gov.au/en/climate-projections/futur... This state, Kwinana State (P), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Southern & South-Western Flatlands region". CSIRO's Southern & South-Western Flatlands region coincides with BloggerMe's N,P,Q, and a tiny bit of X and a tiny bit of R.

"... the Hairy Marron is restricted to the Margaret River. The Hairy Marron is aptly named for the tufts of hair-like setae that cover its shell. [...]

"Hairy Marron are unfortunately declining rapidly in their natural habitat, mainly due to competition with Smooth Marron which invaded the Margaret River some time during the early 1980s. Crayfish geneticist Chris Austin sampled sites in the Margaret River and found Smooth Marron for the first time in 1985. By 1998 there were no Hairy Marron. It is not known how Smooth Marron invaded the Margaret River, but translocation by humans seems likely.

"The Hairy Marron is now virtually absent from the lower reaches of the river downstream of Margaret River township, completely absent from the middle reaches in farmland, and still present in pools of the upper reaches in relatively undisturbed woodland. It was estimated in 2004 that less than 10,000 individuals were left in the wild."

"Already, mussels have disappeared from many streams in eastern Australia from loss of catchment vegetation in association with agricultural development. The habitats in many streams have become degraded from channel erosion and sedimentation. Increased nutrient loads in runoff, loss of shading vegetation and invasive water plants like Salvinia molesta and water hyacinth (Eichhornia spp.) have badly affected mussels in some parts of Australia. [...]

"In the mid-1990s, Carter’s Freshwater Mussel (Westralunio carteri) in south-western Western Australia was listed as “Vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List and recognised as a “Priority 4” species (a species in need of monitoring) by the WA Department of Environment and Conservation and, more recently, nominated for listing under EPBC criteria following a four-year study at Murdoch University.
