The Canaways Creek catchment is just a small part of the overall Tasmanian, Australian, and global environment.

At a global level, climate change has become recognized by all major governments as a serious threat. U.K. Chief Scientific Advisor David King, said "climate change is the most severe problem that we are facing today - more serious even than the threat of terrorism."

At a national level, water and the Murray Darling Basin is taking center stage.

It is the thousands of local projects such as logging Canaways Catchment, that are causing these crises. Check out the connections!
