Dear ExplorOz Reader,
This newsletter combines our usual features plus a firsthand account from David and Michelle who were at a meeting at Ningaloo Station yesterday. The 272 people in attendance were there to hear the results of a battle against DEC to save Ningaloo Station from a massive tourism development scheme. Ningaloo desperately seeks your help. Copy this newsletter to your friends and family and make an effort to write a letter expressing your dissatisfaction to the government process and send it to Hon Alannah McTiernan and Hon Robin McSweeney and your local MPs.

Ningaloo Future Uncertain
Although Ningaloo Station was successful in renewing their lease to 2064, the DPI are now putting a conditional clause to claim land for ‘public purpose’.

The DEC has staked a claim for 48% of the 49,500 hectare station for Ningaloo Marine Park. This controversial plan includes developments of massive tourism nodes and the end of beach frontwilderness camping at Winderabandi Point, South Lefroy Bay and Jane Bay. It would also see the total removal of three generations of family heritage and pioneering livelihood. People power is the last chance to save Ningaloo in its natural state.
