The Barmah Millewa Collective is currently campaigning on the Murray Darling Basin Plan - a once in a life time opportunity to safeguard water for the rivers, wetlands and forests of over 14% of Australia's landscapes!
We also continue to collaborate with Traditional Owner Nations throughout the Murray-Darling Basin to protect and care for this unique and threatened landscape. Our work ranges from on-ground revegetation projects through to campaigns for Aboriginal land and water rights.

Yesterday police and forestry officers forced protesters out of the Millewa Forest where they had stopped an illegal logging operation for ten days. Despite the peaceful nature of the protest and the small number of protesters about fifty police were deployed in the operation. Three people were arrested.
