The Kimberley & Northern Australia

The Kimberley and Northern Australia are iconic regions under threat from the expansion of unsustainable industries which pose a cultural and environmental threat. The short term gains of exploiting natural resources cannot justify the long term cost of damaging this unique area. We are committed to protecting the region’s wilderness areas, coasts and rivers and to supporting and adequate resourcing of communities.
