Kangaroo Island Eco-Action continues protection mission

Kangaroo Island Eco-Action held its annual general meeting at the yacht club on Sunday, September 26.

The list of activities, involvements and achievements for the 2020/2021 financial year was discussed, as well as new directions forward.

Guest speaker was Greens MLC Robert Simms, who beamed in online from Adelaide. He facilitated a discussion on the impact of development done under the guise of tourism.

Members want to encourage Island residents to simply be a member of Eco-Action to support its advocacy role that it plays on KI.

“We are regularly approached both on a local, state and interstate level to play a role in helping defend and stand up for environmental issues,” chairman Fraser Vickery said.

“We have noted a small drop in membership numbers and perhaps that is since the conclusion of the Public Parks not Private Playgrounds campaign, but now more than ever we need to maintain a strong membership base.”

Members said they wanted people to feel at ease that being a member does not mean that they need to come on a committee, plant trees or attend regular working bees, but rather they recognise the importance of having such a group representing your community and of course one that advocates for the protection of the natural environment.

“So whether you are an Islander or someone that cares about the Island please consider a membership.”
