Backing a new generation of Outback leaders

Decades of historic over-grazing in WA has left an area three times larger than Tasmania in ‘poor condition’, where productivity and the natural balance have been destroyed. A number of inspiring and innovative leaders who run Outback Stations are working hard to turn this legacy around, but they can’t do it alone. After decades of turning a blind eye to over-grazing on publicly-owned pastoral leases (these leases cover an enormous one third of our State), the Government has a responsibility to get behind a new generation of land stewards so they can restore the land to productivity and health. If this is going to happen we need to let our MPs know how important it is to us.

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

"It breaks my heart to leave, but I have no choice."

My family and I have made the hardest of decisions – to leave our home, Nallan Station. We’ve given every last drop of energy, time and money to bring this extraordinary part of WA back to health, but now our time is up.

Outback people need your support. Please sign Michael’s petition asking the WA Government to make the Outback a priority, so that other families aren’t forced to leave.

Will you sign?

    When you sign the petition, an email will be sent to the WA Premier, Opposition Leader and Leader of the WA Nationals to let them know you’ve signed. Click here to read more.
