Protect Kimberley Natural Heritage from fracking
The WA Government has lifted the moratorium on fracking in the Kimberley, leaving most of the region at risk from fracking.
The government is willing to exclude ‘Iconic Natural Heritage Places’ from being fracked, and has selected tiny areas that fit its criteria. The public comment period allows you to have a say on which places in the Kimberley should be considered Iconic Natural Heritage Places that need to be protected from the fracking industry.
Let’s tell the WA Government that these important ecological areas must be protected from fracking. We have listed some of the areas the WA Government has missed, which would qualify even under its own narrow definition of ‘Iconic Natural Heritage Places’. You may wish to include others. Please sign the prefilled petition or write your own message and list any other areas you wish to include in the list, and let the WA Government know that the Kimberley environment is too precious to lose.
Other areas where petroleum titles exist that we consider to be iconic natural heritage that you could include are the Looma Hills, Mount Anderson, Erskine Range, Edgar Range, Geegully Creek and Mowla Bluff.
