|Can you protect endangered species when climbing?
Someone was climbing "Hermione" regardless of the obvious pink tag when we reach there yesterday. This is Little Trigger Wall, a warming up area at Bardens Lookout, NSW. They were told off by one of our local mates, though it was not easy for him to persuade one of them. We need a clear signage about Nankeen Kestrel at the bottom of the route. I know the sign-post has been placed at the bottom, but it is on the ground. We need it on the 1st hand-hold on the rock.
And more ads for awareness to reach necessary people who do not read anything other than crag info from our guide books or websites, who do not care about the endangered species. We are sharing rock with not only other climbers but also with other native lives.
At the risk of being a pedant, the Nankeen Kestrel is definitely not an endangered species. It is regarded as Secure or Not at Risk throughout Australia.
That's not to say one should not be careful around them while nesting. They will mess you up.

Just do it then instead of complaining about it on the internet.
