The Kimberley environment has a new advocate, George Negus. He has been recruited by the Save the Kimberley lobby group which is campaigning to limit the impact on the region of developments such as a proposed gas processing hub. He was clearly impressed by the group's Sydney promotion recently:
It's not people saying 'hands off', they're not people saying'lock it down', they're people who are saying 'this is how we can go about it'.Look forward to his promised fact-finding visit, hopefully in the near future.
It's not your normal rabble-rousing operation, it's a very sane, sensible approach.

Another group fighting to protect the region is Environs Kimberley which has been conducting a range of campaigns.
Note: The weekly Broome Advertiser is not yet online. It is part of the West Australian stable which controls most of the regional papers in WA. At this stage only two of their 20+ regionals are on the web.
