Land clearing is skyrocketing in the NT

We’re representing the Environment Centre of the Northern Territory (ECNT) in the NT Supreme Court, where we’ll challenge a decision to let a huge multinational corporation bulldoze over 900 hectares of important savanna woodlands.

The NT’s woodland savanna are a little known but vitally important ecosystem. It’s a diverse and, until now, an ecosystem largely untouched by industrial agriculture.

But a burgeoning cotton industry plans to bulldoze vast amounts of savanna woodland to pave the way for large-scale cotton production – which we’ve already seen devastate the Murray Darling Basin.

Join us at this rapid online briefing to hear the full details about this legal action from our client, ECNT, and EJA lawyers.
