Yalgorup National Park Survey

The City of Mandurah is investigating the level of community support for nominating Yalgorup National Park and the Yalgorup lakes for National Heritage listing. Yalgorup National Park is located at the southern end of Mandurah, and shares a border with the Shires of Harvey and Waroona. It is one of the most important environmental assets in the Peel region. If you are a resident within the City of Mandurah, Shire of Waroona or Shire of Harvey they would like to hear from you. Take the survey here.

Climate-related Pollution in WA

Would you like WA’s biggest polluters to be accountable for their emissions? The Environmental Defender’s Office urgently needs your help to fight for a safer climate and protect WA’s unique and fragile environment. The team needs to raise at least $25,000 in the next four weeks. This will enable EDOWA to undertake critical legal work and direct the State towards a low-carbon, renewable energy future. Find out more here.

Dolphin Rescue

PPG is supporting the Mandurah Dolphin Rescue Team’s efforts to raise money for much-needed equipment to help stranded dolphins. If you’d like to make a donation to this worthy cause or you’d like more information please click here.
Thank you to P&N Bank members who voted for Mandurah Volunteer Dolphin Rescue Group in the bank’s “Helping Hand” program. As a result they will be receiving a $2,000 donation.

Forests for Life

Logging in WA is destroying nests, food and shelter for endangered wildlife including Black Cockatoos, Numbats and Western Ringtail Possums. Over 50% of the ancient forests in the South West have already been destroyed.
Act now to urge the McGowan Government to act on its pre-election commitments to ‘immediately conserve High Conservation Value forests’ and ‘complete the transition of the timber industry to sustainably-managed plantations and farm forestry’. www.ForestsForLife.org.au

Overfishing

Australia’s borders were closed to overseas fishing fleets more than 20 years ago after decades of devastating overfishing. But the commercial fishing industry is currently in talks with the Australian Government about allowing overseas fleets back into our waters. At the same time, the Government is trying to strip back the sanctuaries in the marine parks where these vessels might operate. Say NO to overseas fishing fleets.
