We all feel pretty strongly about protecting our Top End way of life. We share a love for the great outdoors and a strong connection to the amazing natural landscape we’re lucky enough to call home.

Healthy rivers are central to the Territory way of life. They’re where we fish, we boat, we relax and we enjoy the unique Top End lifestyle. But they’re under threat from big business who want to take huge amounts of water from our rivers. We don’t want to see what happened down south on the Murray Darling happen to our Top End rivers.

You can help protect our amazing Top End rivers, by writing a letter to the NT News.

Use our handy form below to submit a letter to the NT News, and help us to highlight the ongoing fight to protect our rivers.

Some tips on writing your letter:

  • Why are you writing a letter about Territory rivers? How do the rivers it affect you personally?
    “I’m concerned about the threats from big cotton to how we all get to enjoy our rivers.”
  • What is it about our rivers that you enjoy?
    “Our rivers provide an important part of the Top End experience and lifestyle – fishing for a huge Barra, getting out into nature and being connected to the land and water.”
  • What do you want to see happen?
    “It’s time that the NT Government took serious the responsibility of protecting our rivers, and make sure they survive for future generations to enjoy.”
  • Short and sweet is best. No more than 300 words in total.
Remember, your letter is more likely to be published if it is short, sharp and to the point.
