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, flora and fauna. Our long term goal is a NSW Gas Ban (just like Victoria) and a coal free future.

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 on the ground practical assistance and advocacy for communities under threat. We will share our expertise, experience and skills 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 farming communities and committed environmentalists can be by effectively halting the CSG industry in NSW for many years.

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.

@LucyTurnbull_AO There’s a multitude of risk & loss; from Gomeroi sites, Koala translocation & high value habitat destruction, risk to #ausag productive irrigation & black soil farmland, let alone the high risk to water which is very problematic for #shenhua #auspol #coal

@FrancieJones the Liverpool plains are an agricultural treasure which must be protected which means thorough science and hydrology.

Kudos to ⁦@beyondzeronews⁩ for the vision behind their million jobs plan.

It makes economic _and_ environmental sense to take advantage of our huge opportunities in renewables to recharge our economy.

Electrons not molecules.

@zalisteggall @smh Same thing will happen on the #liverpoolplains with #shenhua coal mine. They have approved plans to dig & cut up ancient indigenous grinding grooves the size of buses, and blow/smash the rest up, never to be restored. #Reconciliation or endless #jobsandgrowth ? #auspol #nswpol
