Letter to Federal Environment Minister Plibersek

We study in lutruwita/Tasmania and enjoy a proximity to a wealth of natural values. We know and learn on a daily basis that both the natural values of lutruwita/Tasmania and the country as a whole are in extensive trouble, with indicators pointing to poor condition and with a recognised state of further decline.

We wrote to Minister Plibersek following the release of the Federal Governments State of Environment report. 

Our three key points are: no new coal + gas, environmental law reform, and international leadership. Find out more by reading the full letter here.

The project is not 1.5 degree consistent - we will not be able to achieve the Paris agreement if this project goes ahead.
The project will devastate WA’s unique marine wildlife.
The projects is a threat to irreplaceable WA First Nations’ heritage – the Burrup Peninsula Rock Art."
