Recognising the Mambo-Wanda Wetlands Conservation Group
I recognise the enormous effort made over the Christmas break by the terrific Mambo-Wanda Wetlands Conservation Group.
The group spent the entire Christmas period—from the end of November until today—obtaining signatures for a petition to save the Mambo wetlands.
The petition is very simple: it asks the Government to buy back the Mambo wetlands because it sold it off last year.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald has described the sale as a mistake. Our community is asking the Government to fix that mistake.
This group has worked so hard it has obtained more than 13,000 signatures on the petition, which I have tabled today.
I look forward to the debate in Parliament to understand why this Government will not act to fix its mistake and return the Mambo-Wanda Wetlands to public hands.
