Wild Law and Rights of Nature Seminar – AWLA

Wild Law and Rights of Nature - Perth 2013From Australian Wild Law Alliance’s February/March 2013 Newsletter

Australia Wild Law Alliance announces the success of its Wild Law and Rights of Nature Seminar in Perth, Australia Saturday 9th February 2013.

60 people participated in the public seminar held at the Canning River Environmental Centre, Perth, on Saturday 9th February.  This was AWLA’s first visit to Western Australia, and it was a really fantastic event.  AWLA would like to thank John Gherardi, Sheryl Carmody and Jaime Yallup for their invaluable help in organising the seminar and flying AWLA’s National Convenor, Michelle Maloney, from Brisbane to Perth for the event.

A major outcome from the seminar discussions was the decision by several local people, led by Amanda Joseph, to create a new AWLA Chapter in Western Australia.  Well done Team WA! Contact details for the Chapter are set out below.
