Rainforest and Reef Conservation Stories

Ninney Rise, Mission Beach | 3 – 5 July 2014

Overlooking the Great Barrier Reef, Ninney Rise is the heritage listed base from which John Busst organised Save The Reef and rainforest campaigns in the 1960s and 70s. It was a meeting place for campaigners, artists and scientists working to protect the Great Barrier Reef from oil drilling and other threats and for nominating large areas of rainforest to be protected as National Parks.

Friends of Ninney Rise are opening up this historic property for a special conference which celebrates the conservation stories of the region’s reefs and rainforests.

With speakers spanning decades of action and a unique mix of scientists, artists and campaigners, Rainforest and Reef Conservation Stories will run Thursday 3 through Saturday 5 July and numbers must be capped at 90.

A draft registration package is attached, along with a preliminary program. We’d love to welcome you to Ninney Rise in July and more information is available by contacting me at sam@wombatcreative.com.au.
