V (photograph), Memorial Park, 2013, South Bank, Brisbane What evidence still exists from South Bank's past and why is it still in South Bank? 4.1 Recommendations for the future environment and improvement for the future. South Bank has a huge amount of wild birds. They feed on what's left behind by people. But they usually eat things that they aren't supposed to eat. To save both, the wild birds and the environment, there should be more rubbish bins everywhere and there should be a penalt to anyone who litters, to identify these people, there should be survellience cameras everywhere, which would also help crimes from helping e.g. Getting their cars stolen, car break in offence, stolen items and many more. 4.2 Justifications why the changes are necessary People need to put rubbish in the rubbish bin instead of littering because if the birds eat it, then it will damage their digestive systems which will kill them. People want to have a crime free precinct so they can do anything freely without having to worry that something's going to be stolen.
