James Price Point is a spectacular part of the Kimberley. It is home to a large number of threatened and endangered species, a whale nursery and the world's largest dinosaur footprints. It is also the only place in the world where Aboriginal culture incorporates the remnants of dinosaurs. It's cultural and heritage value for Aboriginal people is unique and significant.
I rise tonight to speak about the imminent threat posed to a unique part of Australia. It is a stretch of the pristine Kimberley coastline, which tells the story of our planet and our country from 130 million years ago. It has a record of our planet that was formed at a time when Australia, Antarctica and New Zealand formed a single land mass.
If we really care for people, for communities, and for the environment which sustains us all, this beautiful area, which serves as a nursery for humpback whales, is too precious to lose to short-term mining profits.
