Protect the Helena Aurora Range

Protect the Helena Aurora Range

You know those astonishing natural places that remind us what a magic continent we live on? Tucked away in a corner of Australia you never knew existed?

The Helena Aurora Range is a classic example. Also known as Bungalbin to the Kapurn Nation, it’s in the middle of the WA outback and a jewel of the Great Western Woodlands. It’s an outpost of endless horizons, spectacular wildflowers and vast expanses of Australian bush.

You know those astonishing natural places that remind us what a magic continent we live on? Tucked away in a corner of Australia you never knew existed?

The Helena Aurora Range is a classic example. Also known as Bungalbin to the Kapurn Nation, it’s in the middle of the WA outback and a jewel of the Great Western Woodlands. It’s an outpost of endless horizons, spectacular wildflowers and vast expanses of Australian bush.

But like a lot of spectacular places in Western Australia, there is a big iron ore mining company who thinks it would look much better as a giant hole in the ground.

In the next few weeks, Western Australia’s Government will decide whether these highly destructive iron ore mines will go ahead.

Write to your local Member of Parliament to ask them to protect the range forever!

WA’s Environmental Protection Authority have recommended against it – twice. Scientists and Traditional Owners are opposed to it. But we’re hearing that the mining lobby is pulling out all of its tricks to pressure the WA Government to approve the mines.

Our elected representatives needs to know that there is strong support across the country to protect these spectacular mountain ranges.

We need to make sure that the WA government hears our message loud and clear—reject the iron ore mines proposed for the Helena Aurora Range.
