Information sharing session on the WA plastic bag ban

The Dept. of Water & Environmental Regulation, in partnership with the Boomerang Alliance, invite you to an information session on Wed 14th February 1:00–2:30pm at Mandurah Country Club, 16 Marsh Place, Halls Head.
Please register your attendance at les@impcom.com.au or on 0412 770 193. Light refreshments provided.

Hydraulic Fracturing

If you care about our water, our farmers, indigenous rights and the environment say NO to fracking in WA.

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.

New Committee

We held our Annual General Meeting on 10th November and we’re delighted to announce that we have a new secretary Susanne Godden, and assistants Diane Louw and Barbara Sing. Mel Tuckey is our submissions officer. Koby Anderson does our water testing. Barry Small manages our social media. Ron Glasson represents Bouvard Coast Care. Les Hodgson, Coral Richards, Jo Drew, Denis Gray and Stewart Godden assist with PR and events.
Here is the Annual Report. Perhaps you’re wondering “who is the president?” Well, PPG believes in rotating leadership and so has a “revolving chair” rather than a president.
NEW! Thank you to Dave Thomas for being our treasurer for eight years. He has now stepped down and we have co-opted Ahmed Zilani to the post. Welcome Ahmed!

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.
