The NSW Government has recommended approval of an 850-well coal seam gas field in the Pilliga forest wilderness and farmland near Narrabri.
The Pilliga is the largest temperate forest we have left in the state. Turning it into an industrial gas field will poison groundwater, carve up the forest with roads and pipelines, endanger koalas and other threatened species, and increase the risk of wildfires.
Before this project gets the green light, it must be approved by the Independent Planning Commission (IPC).
Tell the Independent Planning Commission to reject gas giant Santos’s 850-well coal seam gas field in the Pilliga forests wilderness near Narrabri. Sign this:
To the Independent Planning Commission,
We call on you to oppose Santos’s Narrabri coal seam gas field near Narrabri as it will:
- Poison groundwater of the Great Artesian Basin.
- Carve up the Pilliga forest and nearby farmland with roads and pipelines.
- Endanger koalas and other threatened species.
- Increase the risk of wildfires.
- Accelerate global warming by locking in decades of climate pollution.
