Why the river needs protection

Answer

Traditional Owners of the Kimberley area have repeatedly made clear their support for long-term protections for the Fitzroy River; in the 2011 National Heritage Listing, 2016 Fitzroy River declaration, and the 2018 Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council. Development that takes water from the river or floodplains would reduce and redirect water flows and increase pollution.  It would create an unacceptable risk to culture, community livelihoods, wildlife, wetlands and fishing.
