What Can You Do?

 
Some easy things you and your group can do include:
 
(i) Download the campaign petition and collect signatures to help speed up the collection of 10,000 signatures needed to get the issues raised in Parliament. The petition has a return address for completed sheets.
 
(ii) Email and phone key pollies and their senior public servant advisors (important as there is the possiblity of regulatory capture  - a department serving industry interests rather than the public interest) to let them know that taking risks with water catchment areas has got to stop.
