Today I got to participate in my first action on the steps of Parliament in a country other than Aotearoa! I was dressed as a Powerful Owl along with a whole bunch of other native Australian animals and birds to present a postcard petition to the State Environment Minister on behalf of the Wilderness Society.
It was fun!
For those of you who aren’t up to speed with what’s going on in Victoria, there is some pretty major deforestation going on around the tops of the Melbourne water catchment areas. This is completely stupid if you’re trying to hydrate a city containing 4 million people. And then of course, there’s the issue of all of the native wildlife that call these beautiful forests home.
I’m going to be involved in this campaign until the next state election at least, so stay tuned for more news and info.
