Last Friday, Colin Barnett released this plan called the ‘Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy’, which is meant to be a “bold vision” for the Kimberley’s “long-term conservation”.
Barnett said, “The conservation and protection of the Kimberley region is the greatest environmental responsibility that this Government and if you like, this generation of Western Australians faces”.
He went on to say, “It is one of the world’s last remaining great wilderness areas and it needs to be protected forever”.
