Harry Burkitt, from community group ‘Give a Dam’ discussed the NSW Government’s controversial plan to raise the height of the Warragamba dam. This is likely to have a significant impacts on threatened species in the Blue Mountains as well as potentially put the Blue Mountains in danger of losing its UNESCO status.
Give a Dam has found some success by engaging corporate organisations such as insurance companies and super funds. In addition they continue to lobby the local politicians. He requested support (donations, letters to MP’s etc) from OFF members as the campaign is expected to continue for +2 years. This very interesting talk was attended by 40 participants in the second OFF Zoom on-line meeting. TAKE ACTION AT GIVE A DAM WEBSITE
