We 're proud to have a team of champions of the wetlands supporting our cause. These sports stars, writers, musicians and local and national celebrities have rallied behind the Save Beeliar Wetlands campaign to join us in our stand against Roe 8.
We'd like to thank our superstars for their ongoing support and commitment - and for recognising that the Beeliar Wetlands are precious, and deserve our combined efforts to protect the area.
Dr. Brad Petitt
- "What we now know as the suburbs of Perth used to be a series of interconnected wetlands - now these wetlands are increasing rare and precious. It is vital for biodiversity, for the health of our communities, for future generations that no more of these important places are lost or compromised."
- "As a resident of Bibra Lake and an avid supporter for the retention of Bibra Lake as a pristine environment, I fully endorse and support 'Save Beelier Wetlands' struggle in its resistance of the proposed construction of Roe Highway Stage 8."
- "There are few places as beautiful as the Bibra and North Lake wetlands! Their destruction would be a tragic abuse of our wonderful natural environment."
Dom Mariani (The Stems)
- "Growing up in Fremantle, we visited Bibra Lake often for family picnics, we loved feeding the water birds and catching gambusia in the Lake. I did the same things with my kids not that long ago. It would be a real shame to lose or even damage these Lakes and Wetlands.
These Lakes and Wetlands are so unique and important to our heritage and to the ecology of the area, and should be protected at all cost for all, and most importantly future generations. Once they're gone,...they are gone forever."
