Celebrating and saving our region

By Mark Beale

ENVIRONMENTALLY conscious minds will come together next week when more than 15 conservation organisations attend Nature Celebration Whitsundays.

Hosted by the Whitsunday Local Marine Advisory Committee, the event aims to raise awareness about local environmental issues.

WLMAC chairman Tony Fontes said the meeting of organisations held great value.

“But to me, it’s critical we get the public there as well so they can see what the groups are up to,” he said.

The groups will set up displays promoting their operations, giving locals an insight into what they are doing in the Whitsundays.

However, Mr Fontes said the event was more about informing people than influencing them.

“It’s both making them aware of the issues and the opportunities and then they can decide if they want to get involved,” he said.

Mr Fontes touted the event as a must for anyone interested in the environment.

“I guarantee that you will be inspired by what you discover at this forum,” he said.

“Anyone I know that’s become involved in a charity or environmental organisation, it becomes a passion – there’s nothing more fulfilling.

“It’s very satisfying to know you are making an active difference on important issues affecting Australians.”
