Tell Buru Energy to clear off!
Dear NRPG members and interested,
For your information – please have your say.
President, NRPG Bushcarers
|Dear Steve, Buru Energy is back with a new plan to clear a massive amount of native vegetation as they explore for gas in the Kimberley, close to the Martuwarra Fitzroy River. They’ve done this before – clearing a huge amount of gridlines for seismic surveys, equivalent to the length of a bulldozer driving direct from Perth to London.*Now, the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is asking for your comments on whether to publicly assess this harmful project. It’s vital they hear from West Australians around the state that we don’t want the Kimberley turned into industrialised oil and gasfields.Will you make a public comment today on Buru’s new proposal in the Kimberley and call on the EPA to publicly assess this project? We can’t leave it up to a private assessment between the EPA and Buru – or even worse, not be assessed at all.|
Buru’s new proposal would involve clearing 438 hectares of native vegetation across 1147km of grid lines. This clearing would fragment habitat for native species including the conservation significant rainbow bee-eater, spectacled hare-wallaby, gouldian finch and the threatened greater bilby.This precious natural area should not be sacrificed to a fossil fuel project from Buru, especially in a time of severe climate change impacts around the country.
Will you urge the EPA to publicly assess Buru Energy’s new proposal in the Kimberley? You have until midnight Monday 3rd October. Head here to see the simple steps and fill out a quick form.Thank you for your support for a Frack Free Kimberley,
