Queensland's surface freshwater systems are threatened by climate change. Research shows that regulated (dammed) rivers are the most at risk. Mary and Burnett River actions on 6th September. Print a Poster!
Australian Conservation Foundation campaign, focussed on the unique Mary River Turtle.
The campaign to Save The Mary River has grown from the inital response coordinated by Mary Valley residents fighting for the future of their river and community to a truly broad-based national and international response. This website now serves as a portal to a range of related efforts to save this river for future generations. The Queensland and Australian Governments are poised on the brink of making a decision which will either provide a truly reliable and sustainable water strategy for South East Queensland (of which we can all be proud), or one which will inevitably lead to the shameful and entirely avoidable degradation of a globally significant river system and all it sustains.
Please take the time to decide which future you want to be a part of, and take some form of personal action (however small) to help it happen. You can make a difference!
Nearly 500 million dollars has been spent destroying the families and communities of the Mary Valley for the sake of a flawed project which has still not been approved under state or federal law. Click on the pictures to visit these sites to learn more.
