Protestors rally to save Wallum nature reserve

Right now in Brunswick Heads in northern NSW, hundreds of activists are fighting to save an important ecosystem.

Property developers have been given the greenlight to build apartment blocks across Wallum, a coastal landscape home to over a dozen threatened species of flora and fauna, and trees that predate British colonisation.

Activists are calling the project a ‘zombie development’, with environmental approvals given to the site over a decade ago that likely don’t meet today’s standards.

Jacob speaks to Save Wallum campaign organiser Svea Pittman, and NSW Greens MP Sue Higginson, about the proposed development and environmental conservation in planning laws.
