WA Today - Secret reports detail decline of pastoral leases

Two secret government reports reveal a massive area of Western Australia's outback can no longer sustain traditional grazing, which could force more people off the land.

Opposition environment spokesman Chris Tallentire secured the two Department of Agriculture and Food WA reports through the state's Freedom of Information laws and released an analysis on Tuesday.

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.
