4nature is a volunteer-based conservation group established in 2010 that seeks to protect the natural environment of Australia and the South Pacific. Some of the causes we worked on recently:
Springvale Mine: At the end of 2015, 4nature took the owners of Springvale coal mine and the NSW government to court to stop them polluting Sydneys drinking water. After originally losing the case in the Land and Environment Court, in August 2017 we won on appeal in the NSW Supreme Court. Before the court determined final orders, the NSW Parliament passed special legislation overturning our win. Despite the setback, the Springvale mine was still required to build a pipeline and treatment plant to ensure mine water is clean of its pollutants rather than discharging them into the Coxs River, one of the main sources of Sydney’s drinking water. The treatment plant began operation in June 2019.
Solomon Islands: Since 4nature was formed in 2010, we have supported the efforts of landholders on Kolombangara Island in the western province of the Solomon Islands. Each year 4nature raises funds for conservation scholarships that support Kolombangara Island parents to pay for their school fees, rather than relying on logging income. Since 2011, 4nature has raised over $70,000 to support the scholarship program.
4nature also supports the protection of the 20,000 hectare conservation area on Kolombangara Island.
