Please join WA Forest Alliance for the launch of the Protect Northern Jarrah Forests campaign at Perth City Farm.
The Northern Jarrah Forests (NJF) are some of the most beautiful, diverse, and vulnerable forests on Earth with species diversity that ranks alongside tropical rainforests. But with changes in climate and a history of severe exploitation, they are on the brink of collapse.
International mining companies Alcoa and South32 are proposing to clear an additional 13,672 hectares over the next decade for bauxite mining, and Rio Tinto has applied for exploration licenses across a further 107,000 hectares of Northern Jarrah Forests. We must draw the line and protect what's left of the NJF!
You'll hear from WA Forest Alliance Convener Jess Beckerling and The Wilderness Society WA Campaigns Manager Patrick Gardner about the campaign and why we must stop the clearing of these ancient forests so they can remain as critical habitat for endangered wildlife and vital carbon stores.
Pre-purchase a delicious Chickpea Rendang Curry from The Hidden Pantry for dinner and pair it with local wine and beer available for sale on the night. The evening will include door prizes, a raffle and merchandise for sale. All proceeds support WA Forest Alliance's protection of the Northern Jarrah Forests.
