Event description

Description

Explosive new research findings will reveal the extent to which Murujuga rock art is being destroyed rapidly by industrial pollution.

Be there. Hear the news first. Join the fight to preserve Western Australia’s most significant cultural heritage site.

The Burrup Peninsula and Murujuga National Park holds the greatest concentration of rock art in the world, with an estimated one million engravings spread over less than 400 square kilometres. It has some of the oldest surviving art, with recent research suggesting ages greater than that of European Cave art. The area has amongst the oldest human face depictions anywhere in the world.

The new WA Labour Government pledged to nominate the area to the UNESCO World Heritage list in its election campaign and it is now acting on this commitment.

But… new findings show the increasing speed at which industrial pollution is destroying the art. Hear the evidence. Find out what you can do about it.
