Don’t let them frack Queensland's outback rivers

At the last three elections, the Queensland Government promised to protect the mighty floodplains of the Channel Country in the Lake Eyre Basin.  

But they haven’t delivered, and there are approvals to frack for oil and gas across 11 leases covering over 225,000 hectares of land. 

New expert research shows these gasfields would be the most polluting gasfields in Australia, and would blow our greenhouse gas reduction targets out of the water.

Stop gas companies destroying the last free-flowing desert rivers in the world. Tell the Premier not to frack with our rivers and floodplains.

Angus Emmott, Lake Eyre Basin grazier and lifelong naturalist.

Dear Premier,

I support our outback farmers, Traditional Owners and communities and ask that you do the same.

Please support the clean green beef industry and thriving tourism sector in the Channel Country and safeguard cultural heritage. 

Protect the rivers and floodplains from fracking, and associated roads and pipelines, for good.
