There’s one other thing common to many of these proposals: secrecy. This is what ponp.org is changing. While government departments and private entities attempt to keep the details of proposed developments hidden, ponp.org shines a light on these proposals. This is a space to keep track of developments in national parks and other public lands across Australia, and highlight the shift of focus of National Parks’ Services across the country from protection to profit.
So get involved now. The fight against these proposals will not be easy. But in the history of this country, so much of our greatest natural heritage has only been protected after protracted struggle. And if you know of a national park that’s in developers’ sights that’s not on this website, let us know. Public knowledge is the key to fighting this scourge.
