JOIN THE MOVEMENT TODAY!

From Broome to Bunbury and beyond, vast areas of Western Australia are covered in petroleum exploration licenses! 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.

Along with local, regional and national partners, we are working to educate people, build the movement and stop fracking. Will you join us?
