Friends of the Earth's River Country has campaigned for 18 years with Indigenous nations along the Murray River to protect over 250,000 ha of Red Gum Forests in new national parks and conservation reserves. Today we support Traditional Owners with their aspirations of caring for country and fight for the mighty Red Gum forests to ensure their survival for generations to come.
To see a flourishing Murray-Darling Basin where Indigenous peoples enjoy sovereign rights to country.
OUR CAMPAIGN GOALS
Ensure environmental water is delivered in full and with integrity under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.
Stand with communities who oppose developments that risk local Red Gum Forests, lakes and floodplains
Support Traditional Owners in their fight for sovereignty and co-management of their land and water.
