Dear Premier, Opposition Leader and Local MP
I support the creation of new national parks jointly managed by Traditional Owners, as an important part of the WA COVID economic recovery.
The expansion of our national park estate in WA will be a longstanding legacy for all Western Australians.
The pandemic has reminded us all just how valuable national parks and nature are to our health, wellbeing and the economy, as well the importance of protecting our natural wonders and wild landscapes.
Investment in national parks not only protects WA's best natural assets, but also creates employment and regional development opportunities. These include tourism and the creation of Aboriginal ranger jobs, which benefits the environment and remote communities.
I urge you to commit to continue creating new national parks in partnership with Traditional Owners into the next term of government -for us all to enjoy.
