If you find an injured, sick or orphaned native mammal you are not allowed to keep it as a pet.

CSG in Gloucester

FAWNA has responded to requests for help from members in the Gloucester area with their advocacy against Coal Seam Gas and the dangers to their environment from potential pollution to the area’s above and below-ground water resources. FAWNA joins our Gloucester area locals in spirit with their great celebration at AGL’s decision to abandon CSG operations in NSW.
