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!

You can also RSVP to the Facebook event for updates.

This event is hosted by Conservation SA, River Lakes and Coorong Action Group, the Australian Conservation Foundation and the Wilderness Society.
