Submission to the EPBC assessment of the proposed helicopter-accessed tourist accommodation proposal at Lake Malbena
On 11 October 2022, Keep It Wild made a submission in response to the invitation for public comment on the EPBC assessment of the proposed helicopter-accessed tourist accommodation proposal at Lake Malbena (EPBC referral no. 2018/8177).
This submission raised a number of objections relating to:
- Wedge-tailed eagles
- Management plan
Given the significance of wilderness to this World Heritage property and the negative impact this proposal would have on wilderness, threatened species and multiple other World Heritage values, the Commonwealth Environment Minister should not approve the proposed action under the EPBC Act.
