Please sign our petition to protect this unique natural landscape, the Denniston Plateau, to stop it being dug up for dirty coal. (Photo: Neil Silverwood).

We at CANA are concerned that the official panel, currently reclassifying the DOC stewardship land on the West Coast, is recommending too low a level of protection (“Conservation Park”) for this magical landscape, some of which has already been lost to opencast coal mining.

NB: The Minerals Council has stated that a “Conservation Park” classification will still allow mining!

More information is available on the petition site – please sign – and share with your friends.

We have until 26 July to make our final submissions.
