FROM ICONS TO ASHES – report on the devastating results of prescribed burning
Dear NRPG members and interested,
Important and interesting new report and Launch – apologies for the late send.
President, NRPG Bushcarers
Please find attached “Icons to Ashes”, a report reporting on the devastating results from the prescribed burning practice in the Walpole Wilderness Area predominantly, but which most likely mirror other regions in the south-west and the South Coast district.
We hope you can distribute this report and the press release to your members and it would be a great help to remind your Member of Parliament and/or Minister, the Hon. Reece Whitby MLA that we need an independent review of the practice, which we have been lobbying for during the last 4 years.
We are concerned that if no change is being implemented soon, that we wil be left with a highly impoverished landscape devoid of our treasured marsupials and birds.
Please share with your contacts.

“Contents are starkly honest and deeply disturbing.
Not only is the tragic degradation of a precious ecosystem vividly documented, but the reader is left deeply
bewildered by the flagrant disregard exposed in its pages for the fundamental principles of ecological management
community safety and accountable government”.
