This month WEPA proudly joined a wide range of nature/environment/community groups from across Australia to call for new national nature laws. The campaign was in response to the 10 yearly Independent Review of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. If we consider Australia’s record in leading the world on extinction; galloping deforestation; Government’s reluctance to deal with climate changes and increased bushfire impacts; its apparent policy paralysis in relation to our dying rivers, waterways and marine environments amongst other concerns – it is clear that a new approach and commitment is required to rescue our incredible and unique environment and its inhabitants. ‘
