From Broome to Bunbury and beyond, vast areas of Western Australia are covered in petroleum exploration licenses! Read more about the regions under threat from fracking and unconventional gasfields in WA...

Landholders and communities across WA are locking the gate to companies wanting to develop shale and tight gas across our farmlands, water supply areas and iconic natural landscapes.

Hundreds of new peer-reviewed scientific studies in the last 5 years have confirmed that fracking is dangerous and harmful. Fracking isn’t safe anywhere and must be stopped everywhere.

Along with local, regional and national partners, we are working to educate people, build the movement and stop fracking. Join the movement today to help put an end to this destructive practice. Take action. Join the movement, and/or volunteer.
