Many towns and cities are impacted by these geographical issues, Sydney is one of them. Therefore they are in need of managements. Urban growth is caused by various pull factors, including better educational and employment opportunities, better facilities and the large variety of service industries. However urban sprawl, the continuous outward growth of urban area to great distance from the city centre, causes a number of problems within the society and its environment. For example, building infrastructures, managing waste disposal, the use of natural resources and energy consumption cost a substantial amount of money.
A Recovery Plan for listed steelhead trout Evolutionary Significant Units (ESU’s) has not yet been developed. Without a Recovery Plan, the most appropriate approach for addressing activities that might adversely affect steelhead trout include considerations for protecting critical spawning and rearing areas. The NOAA Fisheries has designated critical habitat for the listed UW steelhead trout which encompasses all accessible reaches of all rivers and tributaries below longstanding naturally impassible barriers and specific man-made structures. Critical habitat for the steelhead ESU is designated to include all river reaches accessible to listed steelhead trout in the upper Willamette River and its tributaries above Willamette Falls upstream to, and including, the Calapooia River. Also included are adjacent riparian zones, as well as river reaches and estuarine areas in the Columbia River from a straight line connecting the west end of the Clatsop jetty (south jetty, Oregon side) and the west end of the Peacock jetty (north

In the article “Animal Rights What’s in a name?” Tome Regan draws a connection between the Deep Ecology movement and animal rights proponents, which could be a considered a uniting force between the two groups which have fundamentally been opposed. To fully appreciate Regan’s argument one must understand the that Deep Ecology perceives animals as a resource and the protection of the environment extends to these resources, thus the protection animals is by default derived from conservation. This view is in contradiction to animal welfares that believe that animals are not resources but living entities with inherent rights. The linchpin argument that Regan provides is that the fundamental idea of protecting animals is a unifying force.
As Sydney became an emerging world city and it’s morphology changed, Pyrmont underwent urban renewal (both processes facilitated though the Better Cities Project), the new targeted residents of DINKS, SINKS, YUPPIES and high income professionals, who were attracted to the gentrified waterfront suburb with a desirable location needed suitable accommodation.
