Save Coral Creek Group consists of local residents with a wide range of backgrounds and experience. Most of us have worked or have family and friends that work in the local coal mines.
Many of us were not initially opposed to the Sonoma Coal Project but upon observing the negative impact of the Sonoma Coal Mine, we could not help but become increasingly alarmed. And not just about the impacts on our own environment, but of the potential impacts further afield as well.
For instance, Coral Creek forms part of the Burdekin River Catchment, and water from our area eventually flows into the ocean, and onto the Great Barrier Reef.
