EDOWA News July 2017

Welcome to the latest edition of the EDO WA news.

First I would like to thank everyone who attended the recent Innovations in Land Use seminar which we held in conjunction with the Piddington Society and with generous support from Curtin University, Castledine Gregory and Solomon Brothers.

In the EDOWA office we are working hard in preparation for a hearing in the Perth Warden’s Court in early August as we represent a number of conservation groups who are objecting to the grant of mining tenements in the Helena and Aurora Range, which is about 100km from Southern Cross in the Great Western Woodlands.

In this newsletter we also include some interesting events coming up, including the Social Impact Festival that has just commenced and will be running until 28 July.

Finally, I would like to remind you that memberships for the 2016/17 financial year are now due. The easiest way to become a new member or renew your existing membership is to visit our membership page on our website.

Please also consider donating to our current Access to Environmental Justice crowdfunding campaign, which only has a few weeks left to run. Thank you to a couple of very generous donations, our tally is sitting at just over $25,000. However we still hope to grow the tally before the campaign concludes! Support from the community is vital in ensuring we can continue to provide our services. We are very grateful to everyone who has donated to date.
