At this month's Mackay Conservation Group meeting on Tuesday 11 April we will present a sneak preview of the new documentary Guarding The Galilee about Adani’s proposed coal mine. We'll also have a presentation about the condition of our local waterways from the Healthy Rivers to Reef Partnership.
Join us on 11 April at 6.30pm at the Mackay Environment Centre, 156 Wood St Mackay. RSVPs essential.
Guarding the Galilee
The film Guarding the Galilee is presented by Queensland-born actor Michael Caton. This new 30-minute documentary shines a spotlight on the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history, Adani’s Carmichael project. The award-winning documentary team captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources. Just downstream from the proposed mine site, a grazier fears for the impact on the river that quenches the thirst of his cattle, and flows through to the Coral Sea. On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie beach tourist hotspot worries about the hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year. Meet these and many others engaged in this fight and find out exactly what mining billionaire Adani has planned for Australia.
Healthy waterways are a vital ingredient in the social, cultural, economic and environmental constructs of a healthy society, with the state of freshwater and marine environments, including the Great Barrier Reef, providing invaluable benefits throughout the Mackay and Whitsunday region. The health of these catchments are essential to bestowing clean and safe drinking water, providing nursery habitats for recreational and commercial fisheries, as well allocating sufficient water sources for efficient agricultural productivity.
