Wedge Island is a beautiful place with a beautiful history. However, these shacks belong to another time and another place. The shacks and the individual family groups who are privlidged enough to use them do significant damage to the local ecosystem as the are built directly on to the dune system. Clearly Lans family was one of those groups. The WA State Government has researched this issue thoroughly and the reccomendations to remove the shacks is a good one. To leave things as they are will do greater damage to a delicate ecosystem and is unequitable to the rest of the population.
