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.

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.
