Defend WA's Nature- Rally for the Forests

Monday, August 05, 2024 at 11:00 AM · 5 rsvps
Office of David Michael MLA in Perth, Australia

Right now, with governments under pressure from powerful vested interests, law reform is not on track to protect the wildlife and places we love. The WA government has announced plans to further weaken environmental protection.  

Our forests won’t survive without strong nature laws!

The Northern Jarrah Forests are on the brink of collapse due to climate change, and are being devastated by the ongoing threat of forest mining.

We urgently need strong nature laws that protect this biodiversity hotspot from mining expansions and prevent further extinctions.

The government needs to provide a fair say to communities, not just corporations, and implement policies to end the rampant destruction of nature.

The WA Government is planning to introduce its nature law reforms to Parliament in August, and there’s a serious risk that these reforms will weaken the few defences currently in place to protect our fragile environment. 

Which is why we're making some noise to call for strong nature laws to defend WA’s nature! 

Join this action 11am, Monday 5 August to call on Mining Minister, David Michael, to defend WA’s nature with strong nature laws!

Our activities involve picnics, educational walks, stalls, film screenings, and meetings with our elected representatives.

One step at a time we take action to prevent environmental threats - doing what we can to give nature a voice.

Threatened Forest Open Day - Dial Range - NW Lutruwita / Tasmania

Sunday, August 11, 2024 at 11:00 AM · 17 rsvps
Dial Range

The Dial Range is under threat - 45 hectares are scheduled to be logged.


The Dial Range is a biodiversity hotspot, home to iconic threatened Tasmanian animals and rare flora. Easily accessible for locals and visitors, the area also offers extensive mountain biking and hiking trails for people of all abilities, allowing important recreational opportunities right on the coasts’ doorstep. 

Clearfelling is a devastating attack on nature – all trees, big and small, old and young, will be uprooted and destroyed. Homes for wildlife will disappear. Clearfelling 45 hectares of these forests will cause untold harm to this critical green corridor, home to iconic Tasmanian threatened species like the Masked Owl, Tassie Devils and Wedge-tailed Eagles. Destroying an area of high natural value that is of economic and recreational importance to locals is unacceptable.

Come along and see the forest for yourself!
