Palaszczuk Government: no new approvals on the Channel Country rivers and floodplains.
It’s time for the Palaszczuk Government to act on their 2015 election promise to protect the Channel Country rivers and floodplains by declaring these sensitive areas no-go zones for oil and gas, large-scale irrigation, and mining.
The Channel Country rivers are some of the last remaining free flowing desert rivers left on Earth. They support cultural connections tens of thousands of years old, one of Australia’s largest clean green beef industries and a budding tourism industry.
Whilst the Queensland Government delays, gas giants are on the march.
Oil and gas fracking is threatening to compromise the rivers that sustain this unique landscape with devastating consequences for the wildlife and people that rely on it.
Join local graziers, Traditional Owners and Outback communities in their fight to protect the Channel Country rivers and floodplains. The rivers and floodplains are too precious to frack!
Sign the petition urging Premier Palaszczuk to protect sensitive floodplains today.
