Salt crisis a disaster, says Shea

Pennells, S. (1997) Salt crisis a disaster, says Shea. The West Australian, 24 November 1997. p. 5 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Steve Pennells.

Syd Shea, the executive director of the Department of Conservation and Land Management, argues for a reframing of the funding model for conservation. He asserts that grants and government funding will never be sufficent to reverse land degradation in Western Australia due to the sheer amount of catastrophic damage already done to the land. He suggests a more sustainable solution is to 'make it profitable to be conservationists'.
