If you live in the Melville area, you're now in the prime seat...

The changes to Outback laws that we’ve been working so hard to achieve are now at risk. 

Your local member Dean Nalder has only recently become Minister for Agriculture, and in the last two weeks there have been reports that he might block these vital changes. 

His opinion could sway the government one way or the other – and it’s vital that he chooses the right road ahead for our Outback.

As a resident of the Melville area, your voice counts. Use the form on this page to send Dean Nalder a message now - ask him to support changes to Outback laws that will lay the foundation for a brighter future.

    If the Outback laws are changed, it would open up a wealth of sustainable opportunities such as carbon farming, tourism, Indigenous land management and conservation. These possibilities would not only provide a more prosperous future for people in the Outback, but a healthier outlook for nature.

    Thanks to the support of people all over the state, the WA Government committed to changing these unfair laws.

    But without the support of the Minister for Agriculture, these changes could now be at risk.

    Ask Dean Nalder, Minister for Agriculture and your local representative, to choose the road to a brighter future for our Outback.

Our Outback is an amazing place, but what makes it special is at risk. 

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality

Carbon farming is breathing life back into the Wheatbelt. But just over the fence in WA’s Outback, where it's needed most, it's not allowed.

Kent Broad has been a farmer all his life and he's seen first-hand the benefits that carbon farming has brought to WA's Wheatbelt - but the Outback is missing out.

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality - tell government today.
