Event description

Description

The Blue Mountains Conservation Society is holding a Rally to Protect our National Parks.

National parks face many threats from high end accommodation, development proposals, fast-growing visitor numbers, horse-riding, events, feral and invasive species, increasing helicopter and small plane joy flights.

The Blue Mountains National Park also faces destructive flooding from raising Warragamba Dam wall and the impacts of the Western Sydney airport.

Blue Mountains National Park is one of the eight protected areas that, in 2000, was inscribed to form part of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Greater Blue Mountains Area.

National parks need good managers who are sufficiently resourced to protect the parks’ values. However, the state’s park managers (National Parks and Wildlife Service) has been subject to funding cuts, restructuring and loss of staff expertise.

Show our political representatives and candidates
in the coming federal and state election
how much we care about our national parks!

Come to our Rally to Protect our National Parks.

Speakers include -

Ecopella, an environmental choir that sings about the beauty of our world and the struggle to protect it from exploitation and degradation, will provide inspiring songs!

Here's a leaflet.
