Australians are some of the biggest meat eaters in the world and also have a huge market for ethical, organic agriculture. Not only does ethical, organic meat taste better and feel better, but it protects our environment. Buying and supporting ethical meat production protects our beautiful coast.
Living on the coastline gives us access to many beautiful sources of water, such as the Maroochydore River, our ocean coastlines, and the smaller lakes and estuaries in the area. We enjoy cool waters during hot days, waves for surfing, crystal clear rock pools to discover and beautiful scenery through our windows. All of these waterways are important to our life and ecosystem, and they can all be impacted by agriculture in the region.
