The Outback needs people more than ever to meet these challenges.
Right now, government inaction and WA’s laws are stopping the uptake of new sustainable enterprises that care for the land Those Outback stations that want to diversify into more profitable and environmentally-friendly ways of making a living, such as tourism, are not allowed to. Frustrated by the brakes on opportunity, people are leaving and old, unsustainable practices continue, risking further damage.
Wouldn’t it be great if our laws encouraged new enterprises and jobs, rewarded those who manage their land well, and protected our heritage?
We need a new approach – one that supports people, jobs and nature.
