Environment Matters: Safeguarding WA's EPA and Environment

Join CCWA for our first Environment Matters event for 2024! We will be delving into the pressing concerns surrounding the Cook Government's proposed overhaul of Western Australia's environmental assessment system. Conservation organisations across the state are sounding the alarm on these changes, emphasising the potential threats to WA's unique nature and the independence of the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). 

WA is home to an array of unique plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. However, the count of endangered species increases annually, while wildlife habitats dwindle. In numerous areas, the escalating exploitation of natural resources and climate shifts present unparalleled challenges to our ecosystems. Given this climate and biodiversity crisis, it's crucial that we bolster our Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) instead of weakening it. Our unique environment in WA needs protection, and the EPA plays a key role in that effort.

This event aims to shed light on the potential threats posed by the proposed changes, providing a platform for informed discussions on how we can collectively address these challenges. Together, we can advocate for policies that strengthen the independence of the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) and protect the natural treasures that make WA truly unique. 

We need bold, urgent and decisive action, with new ways of thinking and working together to tackle these environmental challenges and protect our precious wildlife and biodiversity in a rapidly changing environment.

This is a free event and light refreshments will be provided. 

Speakers to be confirmed shortly. 

In the face of significant challenges, this will be a hopeful dialogue centred on solutions and a vision for the future.
