Members Wanted to Preserve Peel
One of the Peel region’s most influential environmental advocates, Peel Preservation Group Inc. (PPG) is looking for local community members passionate about nurturing Peel’s unique landscape for future generations.
Instrumental since the 1970s, PPG led the fight to save Creery Wetlands from canal development, and paved the way for the international listing of the Peel Yalgorup Wetland System; now acknowledged as a wetland of importance under the Ramsar Convention.
Member Caroline Knight said PPG has fought to maintain some of the Peel Region’s most vital environmental assets since the 1970s.
“When plans were being made to identify the route for the Kwinana Freeway and Forrest Highway, PPG had a seat at the table and ensured the freeway was moved one kilometre east to save Goegrup and Black lakes, saving over 40 hectares of vegetation surrounding the lakes,” Ms Knight said.
PPG is now seeking new members to continue this significant contribution to the region.
In partnership with key environmental stakeholders and organisations, including Peel-Harvey Catchment Council, PPG has considerable work to do over the coming years, with a vision to establish a dynamic and diverse group to lead its future.
“There is no doubt that the Peel Region has one of the State’s most enviable environments, and PPG has been at the heart of its creation,” Ms Knight said. “If you care about its preservation, now is the time to stand up and make your mark.”
