SAVE THE PILLIGA FOREST

Take Action

Santos’s CSG project is too great a threat to the Pilliga forest and our country’s food bowl to go ahead.  

Add your name now to help Save the Pilliga.

SAVE THE PILLIGA FOREST

The Pilliga Forest is the largest surviving forest west of the Great Dividing Range in NSW, one of 15 Biodiversity Hotspots recognised by the Federal Government. 

The forest is a critical refuge for threatened species in a landscape largely cleared for agriculture. The Eastern Pygmy possum, the Barking Owl, Squirrel Glider and south-eastern long-eared bat all call the Pilliga forest home

Despite this, the NSW Government is fast-tracking Santos’s plan to drill 850 new Coal Seam Gas Wells in the Pilliga Forest. 

Coal Seam Gas is a risky unconventional form of gas extraction that threatens our water supplies and environment. 

Roughly 20% of the existing gas exploration wells have seen toxic spills that kill everything in their path.
