Places you love
An alliance of 30 conservation groups has started a campaign called 'places you love'. As the federal government is considering revising environmental laws to facilitate resource exploitation, a major component is to devolve project approval powers to state governments. We need to take action now to keep federal protection of the special places we love in Australia, as they are already vulnerable to development threats, such as from mining. As you can see on this blog there are many places in Australia I love and so of course I've already sent my message to try to keep them protected. There are also some lovely photos on this site in the gallery (I am hoping my picture of koalas on Mt Gravatt might feature there too, I just uploaded it!).
