Join-in on the Action

 

 

 

FROM OUR ACTIONS WE CAN SHOW  that  there  is  GOOD REASON  and  TREMENDOUS COMMUNITY SUPPORT:

for the full protection of Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin

Can be achieved by the following four actions ...

West Australians to say No to mining Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin - being a highly significant natural heritage site with exceptionally high social, landform and conservation (flora and fauna) values.

Mineral Resources Limited to ‘leave Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin alone’ and mine at an alternative site.

Government of Western Australia to say no to mining Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin.

The protection of Helena and Aurora Range (Bungalbin) in its entirety by gazetting it as a Class A National Park

 

And with all parties in agreement we can:

Continue to experience the intact wilderness area of the ‘protected in its entirety’ Helena and Aurora Range (Bungalbin), and share the experience with others - with people from all walks of life, whether from Western Australia, Australia or overseas – by inviting and encouraging them to visit Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin and experience this very special place for themselves.

Ultimately to protect the unique landform, endemic flora and ecological system of Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin, the near pristine nature of this Range, the wilderness experience and the heritage of Bungalbin for the Indigeous people and Westerners alike.

Have joint manage of Helena and Aurora Range, Bungalbin with the conservation department (currently Department of Parks and Wildlife) and the Kalamaia Kapurn People, together with input and support from the community.

Protect and respect Australian Indigenous Culture associated with Bungalbin, their Dreaming, Song Lines, sites of special significance, and more.
