Save Lake Jasper
Lake Jasper has been threatened by mineral sand mining in the D’entrecasteaux National Park. For over 25 years Geoff Evans and Andy Russell spearhead the campaign to protect the site from mining. On World Wetlands day, the 2nd of February 2021, the excised land was returned back to D’Entrecasteaux National Park.
Mining West of Denmark
In May 2021 United Funds Pty. Ltd. applied for a licence to explore for mineral sands from the southern side of the South Coast Highway between Parker Road in the west and McLeod Road in the east. The Denmark Environment Centre initiated a campaign which resulted in the mining company from withdrawing their exploration license application!
