Announcements today regarding the return of a possible 3200GL of water are a step in the right direction, but more needs to be done if we are to return the Murray Darling Basin to health.
Today the O’Farrell Government has put 22 exploration licences up for renewal, including the controversial coal seam gas exploration licence PEL 458 in Fullerton Cove which is in the midst of legal proceedings, and PEL 238 in the Pilliga Forest which is currently subject to a NSW government investigation for damage and misconduct.
Residents are protesting at the Santos sponsored North West Cycling Tour to let Santos know that they cannot 'spin' their way onto local farms and forests with sponsorship and propaganda.
Environment groups are asking questions about what Santos have to hide after the company objected to the release of 34 documents relating to coal seam gas exploration in the Pilliga Forest, near Narrabri in north-western NSW.
The Federal Government's announcement of a network of marine reserves around Australia is a welcome first step to ensuring our extraordinary marine life is better protected, the Wilderness Society said today.
A comprehensive report by environment groups released today has called for coal seam gas exploration titles held by Santos in the Pilliga State Forest to be cancelled and for security deposits to be forfeited.
