Take Action for the Murray-Darling, Lower Lakes and Coorong
On Tuesday 1 May local community members, fishers, environmentalists, farmers and families will gather to send a mayday for the Coorong all the way to Canberra.
It is crunch time for our precious Murray-Darling Basin. A crucial vote in the Federal Senate on May 8 will determine if we get the water we need to keep our Coorong healthy and a plan that delivers right across the Murray-Darling Basin.
Join us to send a strong message: The Murray mouth is on a trajectory to be closed 9 out of every 10 years. We need the 450GL promised for our precious Coorong environments, for our sustainable industries, for our future. Rivers die from the mouth up so a healthy Murray Mouth is essential for a healthy Murray-Darling Basin.
Where? Gather on Sugars Beach on Hindmarsh Island
When? Tuesday 1 May at 10:30am for an 11am media fly over.
What should you bring? Bring sunscreen, a hat and water. Make a placard, wear your waders, dress up as a pelican, make an impact!
This event is hosted by Conservation SA, River Lakes and Coorong Action Group, the Australian Conservation Foundation and the Wilderness Society.
