December 7, 2023 –
Join End Forest Mining campaigners to learn about the campaign, what our goals are and how you can get involved.
Bauxite mining is the primary cause of deforestation in the South West forests. Alcoa and South32 have already cleared over 32,000ha of our ancient, beautiful Jarrah forests. This is an area 80 times the size of Kings Park that has been destroyed for aluminium – an easily recyclable metal.
Now, a massive expansion is being planned.
This reckless mining is destroying ancient forests, pushing wildlife to extinction and threatening our water supplies. It is time to draw the line and stop mining expansions in this Global Biodiversity Hotspot.
End Forest Mining is an alliance of many groups, representing tens of thousands of people, and growing. We are calling on the Cook Government to end forest mining and protect WA’s magnificent forests in National Parks.
Come along to find out how you can support or get involved in the campaign from donating to attending actions and meeting with your MP.
