Call for transparency on conservation areas and pastoral leases

22 June 2017

Conservation group Environs Kimberley is calling on the Department of Lands to release information on new cattle grazing licence applications in the Kimberley.

The grazing licence applications cover hundreds of thousands of hectares of areas proposed for conservation and containing threatened plant and animal species. The applications are in the Dampierland Bioregion, which has less than 1% in conservation reserves.
