Your voice is needed now
| After six decades of secrecy and more than 28,000 ha of forest cleared, the EPA are requesting public submissions on whether to assess Alcoa’s Mine Management Plans. Please take a few minutes to send your feedback and urge the EPA to fully assess Alcoa’s Mining and Management Plans via a Public Environmental Review – this is a vital step in securing the protection of the Northern Jarrah Forests for biodiversity, drinking water and climate.Closing date: 11:59pm, Tuesday 15th August 2023 WAFA have prepared a short guide to make it easy for you. We have outlined some of the reasons why there needs to be a Public Environmental Review, along with supporting information relating to each of the factors that the EPA is likely to base their assessment on. Find more information about the impact of bauxite mining on our webpage Mining in the Northern Jarrah Forests and you can find links to the media articles on our website here. For the forests,Jess Jess Beckerling|
