Countryman: Rangelands act gains support

By Reuben Hale, The Countryman, 19 May 2016

Cue pastoralist Michael Clinch says he needs to diversify his pastoral property in order to survive.

Mr Clinch is one of a growing group of land users seeking to soften their rangelands reforms issues with the State Government, rejecting the Pastoralists and Graziers Association's hardline approach in rejecting the Lands Administration Bill in its current form.

Mr Clinch said he believed the PGA's approach was out of line with the current needs of many people in the pastoral industry who were desperate to find alternative revenue streams away from total reliance on livestock.

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 Premier Mark McGowan and Minister for Lands Rita Saffioti to let them know you’ve signed. The email will also be copied to Shadow Minister for Lands Liza Harvey, Leader of the Nationals Mia Davies, and Greens Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region Robin Chapple.
