Our Protect Ningaloo campaign has received strong support to stop the massive K+S saltworks.
Over 15,000 ocean-lovers have sent an email to WA’s environment minister asking them to say no to the project, and to protect the Gulf.
International industrial corporation K+S wants to build a giant saltworks on the eastern side of Exmouth Gulf, Ningaloo, over an undeveloped, nationally listed wetland.
An industrial development of this massive scale poses unacceptable risks to the sensitive environment here, which supports many threatened species including critically endangered sawfish and shovelnose rays, as well as turtles, dugongs and migratory shorebirds.
In September AMCS made a comprehensive submission to WA’s Environmental Protection Authority outlining our scientifically-based concerns with the project.
Say NO to saltworks. K+S wants to build a giant saltworks – the size of nearly 12,000 MCG footy ovals – on the eastern side of Exmouth Gulf, Ningaloo, over an undeveloped, nationally listed wetland.
