Our Aim is to provide advocacy and assist with community engagement and monitoring services to help landowners and community members who are already or may be impacted by invasive mining and gas pipeline activities. Our goal is to act now with strength and strategic planning.

We Aim to protect and preserve our natural assets such as groundwater, the Great Artesian Basin, food security, forests, farms, Indigenous cultural heritage and values and flora and fauna.

We Seek environmental justice, aiming to uphold and improve our existing environmental laws and preserve intergenerational equity (leave more for our kids, not less).

Our Mission is to provide urgently needed, frontline, practical assistance and advocacy for communities under threat. We will share our expertise to support vulnerable communities faced with the onslaught of Coal Seam Gas, major coal expansions and the linked industrial intensification they entail.

NWPA Members have continually proven how beneficial the relationships between locals, Traditional Owners, farming communities and committed environmentalists can be by effectively halting the CSG industry in NSW for many years. Unconventional gas mining (Narrabri Gas Project) has been approved by the IPC in NSW and Queensland continues to bear the brunt of the invasive and damaging industry threatening the integrity of the Great Artesian Basin.

Join us, we are always seeking new volunteers to join us so please get in touch at northwestpa@protonmail.com and together we will help to stop further damage to country and community.

Our account is open for donations: Every single dollar that is given to us allows our volunteers to continue the essential work of protecting the north-west. All contributions, large or small, are very much appreciated.

Environmental offsets scheme riddled with breaches

@NWPAdvocacy How many landholders will have to just stop their normal current farming practices/activities on or even near the pipe easement, that they will still pay rates on, to avoid any chance of being financially wiped out?ūü§Ē

That would result in un compensated productivity losses!

@FetchStep @NWPAdvocacy But Santos have included a clause in the Deed of Option they are pressing on landholders to endure Santos will not be liable for landholders financial losses.

& a clause to ensure they can recoup costs for damage & Santos $ losses from landholders (who may have lost ins cover)!

Nowhere to put it. No community willing to accept the waste. No proven technology.
