The Pilliga Ultra - a run to keep the Pilliga Wild
The ‘For Wild Places’ crew and The Wilderness Society have teamed up to create a new Ultra marathon to raise awareness and funds to protect the beautiful Pilliga Forest, North West NSW from coal seam gas mining.
We’re calling it the ‘Pilliga Ultra’ – A run to keep the Pilliga Wild’.
Half a million hectares of rare intact temperate eucalypt woodland are under threat.
It’s here that the company Santos plans to build its Narrabri Gas Project, which will see up to 850 coal seam gas (CSG) wells drilled into this ancient landscape.
At 95,000 hectares, Santos’ project is the largest, by land area, ever proposed in NSW. It would be 38 times the size of the City of Sydney.
Let’s stand united against the push to fast track the destruction of our precious forests and wildlife for a fossil fuel resource that threatens our global climate and the sacred country and living culture of Gamilaraay peoples.
