The Channel Country hosts some of the last remaining free-flowing desert rivers left on Earth.
They support cultural connections tens of thousands of years old, one of Australia’s largest clean green beef industries, and a budding tourism industry.
Oil and gas is threatening to compromise the rivers that sustain this unique landscape, with devastating consequences for the wildlife and people that rely on it.
In 2015 the Palaszczuk Government pledged to protect the Lake Eyre Basin’s rivers and their Channel Country floodplains. After eight years of delay, the government is finally about to make a decision on the future of these precious river systems. It’s time to deliver.
Gas giants are already on the march. The Channel Country needs you, now, to step up and demonstrate to the government that oil and gas profits aren’t worth destroying the Channel Country and the people and nature relying on it for survival.
Join local graziers, Traditional Owners and local communities in their fight to protect the Channel Country rivers and floodplains.
This is no place for gasfields!
