to play Free Concert and March for the Kimberley on Fremantle Esplanade 1.30 – 6.30pm, Sunday Feb 24th
Also with special guest Sea Shepherd Director Bob Brown
“This concert and rally is a call to arms for all West Australians to stand up and protect one of our finest national
treasures, The Kimberley,” said John Butler.
“To think of industrialising this truly special region in order to exploit a resource which is more profitable and
practical to process somewhere else seems absolutely ludicrous,“

The Kimberley coast is classed in the top 4% of the least untouched marine environments in the world alongside
the Arctic and Antarctic oceans. Its pristine waters are home to the world’s largest humpback whale nursery, and
threatened dolphins, sea turtles and dugongs. The region is also a significant Indigenous heritage site, is home to
the longest chain of dinosaur footprints on the planet.

One Response to March for the Kimberley on Fremantle Esplanade 1.30 – 6.30pm, Sunday Feb 24th

  1. Can’t wait to get my dance on, especially to such an awesome cause!!
    The Kimberley region is of huge global importance, it has some of the largest intact natural areas left on the planet-comparable only with areas such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Amazon rainforest. WA’s geology is so just unique. The cultural values of the Kimberley are also outstanding, with ancient connections to the country continuing strongly through to the present day. These unique connections and an intricate ecological and geographic knowledge of their land and sea has been developed over tens of thousands of years. We cannot sit back and let it be destroyed! There’s a number of serious pressures, including climate change, large wild fires, feral animals and weeds, cattle grazing degradation and incompatible development.
    Unless we take action now, these pressures will continue to grow unabated and lead to irreversible and widespread environmental degradation, with all the consequent social and economic impacts and costs. We have absolutely no right to do that so lets get our butts in our struts and get our dance on and support what is truly special!
