Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park: Information Note 47

The Environmental Defenders Office (ACT) is providing invaluable assistance to us as it has done for many others. Their funding has been drastically cut by the federal government and they desperately need support. During the current ACT election campaign, the EDO is asking everyone to write to the candidate leaders of the three major parties to get their commitment to future funding. See their website at edoact.org.au.
