Sustainability is what any ecosystem must have: the power to keep
itself in balance over time. If a resource gets used (say a wallaby eats
some grass) that resource must be able to renew itself (the grass has
time to grow back before the wallaby returns), or else the whole system
collapses. It's a basic principle of life, but people often ignore it.
So this is our most technical section. Couran Cove has taken some huge
steps forward in terms of 'green' living on a large scale. New and sometimes
revolutionary plans were drawn up to provide
clean drinking water, remove sewage and kitchen
scraps, and educate staff and guests.
We also spend time examining the choices Couran Cove made about providing
electricity to the resort and talk to the designers
of the eco-cabins about how these holiday homes
were fitted into the existing landscape.
