Submission on Protecting the Yarra River (Birrarung)

As medical doctors we welcome this opportunity to contribute to the community discussion about opportunities to improve the oversight and management of the Yarra River. We rely on natural ecosystems for clean air and water; healthy fertile soils in which to grow our food; a stable climate in which to thrive and a rich tapestry of living organisms- biodiversity- from which we have taken food and developed over half of the medicines in use today.

We are facing urgent threats to our wellbeing from climate change and biodiversity loss and preservation of our river systems is essential as they support our health in many ways, key of which is the protection of our drinking water supplies.
