Gathering evidence of the damage caused to our local environment can be difficult at times but has been vastly enhanced by drone technology.
However, we haven't had access to a drone for our own work aimed at protecting Great Barrier Reef islands from inappropriate development, exposing poor performance in forestry operations and highlighting the impact of bad land management on our waterways.
We want to be able to gather visual images that clearly illustrate the damage being done to our environment but we need some help. A quality drone plus the software and other equipment we need to run it will cost around $4000.
If you can donate a few dollars towards the purchase of a drone for MCG then we can do more to protect the our land and water. Please donate today.Donate
Imagine in 2050 having to explain to your grandchildren that the Great Barrier Reef is gone, and you did nothing to help save it.
If you care about the Reef, if you care about the planet, if you care about the world that the next generations will be born into, then you are at one with the values of the Mackay Conservation Group.
When you make a kind gift to Mackay Conservation Group, you
- help campaign against the dredging, dumping, coal port development, excess shipping and environmental degradation that is damaging the much-loved Great Barrier Reef
- support the work of a dedicated local not-for-profit group, many of whom are volunteers, who are fighting to protect the Reef and the environment for everyone.
Please give. 100 per cent of your gift will be used for research and campaigning - guaranteed.Donate
