New blog aiming to save Helena Aurora Range from mining

Nearby, the equally beautiful and unique Windarling Range has already been mined

Came across this new blog aiming to stop mining at the beautiful Helena Aurora range. http://savehelenaaurorarange.blogspot.com/

Its a very important cause.  The Environmental Protection Agency has called for full protection of these ranges because many species of plants are only found on these ranges.

Some species of flowering plant tetratheca are only found on a single range, with a completely new species on the range next door.  These scenic islands in the flat outback landscape outback are like a Galapagos for the rare flora of WA’s southwest, known as a global plant hotspot for its incredible uniqueness.

These areas need to be protected in an A-Class reserve, not left open for miners to slowly degrade them through exploration, with the goal of one day removing them forever.

Hopefully more soon on some actions you can take to help save this special place.
