Protect the Lake Eyre Basin - Campaign Launch!

Join us for an important conversation and the launch of the campaign to protect the Lake Eyre Basin from fracking! 

Speakers include:

George Gorringe - Lake Eyre Basin Traditional Owner, Mithaka Man, 

Richard Kingsford - World expert on the Lake Eyre Basin

Angus Emmott - Lake Eyre Basin grazier

With over 225,000ha of the Channel Country Rivers in the Lake Eyre Basin under applications for fracking, these incredible floodplains are at a huge risk. It’s not just one or two wells - these projects form a grid of pipes and roads across the landscape. They bring thousands of vehicle movements a year. It would change the face of the Lake Eyre Basin forever. 

The Queensland government has committed to fixing legislation to protect the rivers but our actions over the next 12 months will define whether we get more lip service and loopholes or real protection.  

This campaign launch is a rare opportunity to hear from experts on this amazing part of our state. After the discussion, we’ll be making a plan together to convince the Queensland government to do the right thing.

    Too many properties are being Owned by corporate entities with multiple ownwer ships like a Canadian insurance company, and European Bank
    which clouds custodial responsibilities of each property. Theoretically I they buy an australian Property for financial gain they should pay a patent
    because they profit from our Australian Brand to pay surplus to The australian Government and property owners for necessary management costs like environmental challenges water or other issues .
