Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Research was commissioned during the year on the impacts of proposed coal mining and transport on water resources in the Galilee Basin and the Hunter Valley. This is in keeping with our principal purpose to educate the Australian community about the impact of uncontrolled development on the natural environment.Community monitoring was undertaken of air quality adjoining coal stockpiles and rail lines, to provide an assessment of particle pollution associated with coal storage and transport in order to better educate the Australian community about impacts on the natural environment.A number of submissions were made to Government processes and major project applications to propose improvements in environmental regulations and to make recommendations for the preservation of the viability and productive capacity of Australian farms and grazing lands and the conservation of fauna and flora.Freedom of Information requests were lodged to obtain information on matters to enable improved advocacy on improvements in environmental regulation.Preliminary legal advice was obtained on insurance coverage in the mining industry and how that coverage affects members of the Australian public whose properties, livelihoods, or health are adversely affected by the activities of the mining industry in rural, regional and urban areas.Information was disseminated widely via the media and social media about the impacts of mining on farmland and environmentally sensitive areas, in keeping with our purpose to protect and enhance such areas and to prevent their degradation and to engage in and promote conservation of native Australian species of flora and fauna.A number of public events were held to inform the public about the impacts of uncontrolled mining development and to advocate for members of the public whose properties, livelihoods or health are adversely affected by the activities of the mining industry in rural, regional and urban areas.
