Help save our wetlands

After passing crucial laws protecting wetlands only a year ago, the Govt has caved to the fossil fuel industry and is trying to sneak through a proposal to allow industries – including coal mining – to destroy the few remaining wetlands we have left. . It's outrageous, and the're hoping you won't hear about it. Make a submission telling the Government you want strong wetland protections today!
