North Kimberley station manager Susan Bradley supports Outback WA reforms
North Kimberley cattle station manager Susan Bradley, who oversees Theda and Doongan stations, spoke to ABC Country Hour today about her support for the government's proposed new legislation that will shape the future of the Western Australian Outback.
Ms Bradley said that many pastoralists have been seeking Outback reform for a long time. She criticised those who are seeking to stand in the way of reforms, characterising them as "dinosaurs of industry".
"I don't think that the dinosaurs of the industry should be holding back these people who really want to care for the land," Ms Bradley said.
Ms Bradley is in favour of diversification into more sustainable enterprises in the Outback. The stations she manages are extremely remote, meaning that getting livestock to market is challenging. "We are interested in conservation, in the biodiversity, environment, flora and fauna, and we are carbon trading,” Ms Bradley said.
