Hi everyone.

The Supreme Court of Appeal has been announced for Tuesday 5 March at 10.30 am at the Supreme Court, Stirling Gardens, Barrack St, Perth.

As a lead up to this Supreme Court of Appeal CCWA and ACF would like to invite you to the "All Creatures Great and Small" Public Forum to hear about the landmark Yeelirrie court case, CCWA & Traditional Owners v WA Environmental Minister, environmental law and extinction!
 


Date:   Wednesday 20 February 2019 6.00 pm - 7.30 pm
Location: University of WA Tattersall Lecture Theatre 58 Parkway Crawley WA
Hear from our panel of experts:
 
  • Professor Carmen Lawrence, CCWA President, UWA Senior Honorary Research Fellow & Former Premier of WA
  • Declan Doherty, Principal Solicitor WA Environmental Defenders Office
  • Vicky Abdullah, Yeelirrie Traditional Owner and one of the women applicants on the court case
  • Dr Hugh Finn Lecture at the Curtin Law School, Acting Convener for the Environmental Defender's Office of WA
  • Dave Sweeney, Australian Conservation Foundation to MC the event
 

The event will be a great opportunity to learn about our unique wildlife, biodiversity and ecology.  We will discuss how our current laws have failed our wildlife, and how the landmark Yeelirrie court case aims to uphold environmental laws and prevent extinction.

Western Australia is home to unique animals and wildlife that exist nowhere else on Earth. From the charismatic numbat and black cockatoo to the elusive underground creatures of the desert, these species all deserve protection.

But for many of our animals, survival is the exception rather than the ruleFaced with ongoing clearing, logging, burning, and destruction of habitat, scientists say that many unique species may become extinct within our lifetimes if things don’t change fast.

Can you spare and hour or two to help us with phone banking?

Full training will be given in a fun and enjoyable space at the Conservation Council office. Script, phones and food will available!
Wednesday 13th February from 4 - 8pm.

We need you! Come and join us for a night of talking with our friendly supporters on our upcoming events and how they can help us further to keep uranium in the ground! No experience is necessary as we will give you full training, a script to follow, phone, desk and supplies to keep you going! All welcome! Sign up here!
