Environment

I first got community activism as a resident fighting to save bushland in Nowergup and have remained committed to doing all I can to protect our environment. I am thrilled to be delivering improved environmentally appropriate access to Lake Nowergup in the Neerabup National Park. The McGowan Labor Government cares for our environment. We have so far:

  • Banned single use plastic bags.
  • Passed legislation for a container deposit scheme in WA - coming in July 2020!
  • Banned fracking in Perth, Peel and South West Regions.
  • Introduced the Plan for Our Parks initiative which will see new and expanded parks from the Kimberley in the north, across WA's Midwest rangelands, through areas from Perth to Bunbury, to the South-West forests and a potential new marine park along the southern coastline. The Plan for Our Parks vision to create five million hectares of new national and marine parks.
