Nature Conservation Council of New South Wales
A lot has been happening in the fight to protect coastal communities and the nature that makes them special.

Up and down the coast, residents have been uniting to protect their towns and local environment from ‘Zombie’ developments.

These are the countless projects approved before laws requiring environmental, cultural heritage, bushfire and flood risk assessment were enacted.

That’s why we’ve been working with the Coastal Residents United Alliance to help people identify when a place they love is at risk, and what can be done to protect them.

Please join us next Wednesday to hear from experts and community members defending their towns and environment.

Event details:
MC: Jorj Lowrey (Manyana Matters, Manyana)
Niamh Occleshaw (Crunchtime Australia, Tura Beach)
Justine Emerson (Environmental Defender’s Office)
Cr. Alison Worthington (Deputy Mayor, Eurobodalla Shire Council)

WHEN: Wednesday April 10, 6-7pm
