Our aim is to provide advocacy and assist with community engagement and community monitoring services to help landowners and community members who are already or will soon 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 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.
We are always seeking new volunteers to join us so please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and together we will help to stop further damage to country and community.
