I want action on climate change because things are changing year after year. Our Country's getting hotter, our food less and less each season.

We have one of the best fishing places in Bidyadanga — our salmon run May to July and it's just getting less each year. It hurts when we go out fishing and the sources of food are not there anymore like when we were younger.

We don't even have our cold season up north anymore.

Before the wet season now, sometimes we don't get any rain and it’s so hot. People don't go out as much because it's too hot.

We have oil and gas companies that are threatening our Country here in the Kimberley. They’re putting so many chemicals under the earth and are going to destroy our water.

Our Country feels the effects of climate change and with these oil and gas companies coming in … if they continue we'll have no Country anymore and the damage is irreversible.

We should all work together to look after this earth and our country … for our kids and their kids.

We need to look after Country because Country will look after us. It's good for our people to go out on Country and build ourselves, and when the Country is okay, we are all okay. Country is where we balance our lives from work, from our personal lives. It’s where we play sports and it makes us feel good.

I want urgent action on climate change because things are changing and global warming is hurting mother earth. Let's work together to look after this whole planet. We just need to stop and think and act for change.
