“I would like you to join me, not in saving the whole planet, but to ensure that 1200 very important hectares are looked after in perpetuity. I am not asking you to do something I am not prepared to do myself!
Also I believe it is crucial because with a little bit of luck we are going to do a lot more than save 1200 hectares. The Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary and Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve have the potential to be sites of national and international significance – they are Canberra’s living Laboratories.
Committing to set up a scientifically monitored and managed site in perpetuity is a very big ask, only done to date in one or two places on the planet and on a much smaller scale. Those sites have revealed much more about the world, not just ecology, than they were ever thought to do, and I assure you this could be as powerful and important well beyond my lifetime.
So please join me not only for the future of these places, but also for scientific outcomes that we cannot yet imagine…”
