To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament.

The petition of the undersigned shows that we oppose any mining or mineral exploration in any part of Kakadu National Park, the Kakadu Conservation Zone, or the Alligator Rivers Region.

1. Your petitioners ask that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should halt all mineral exploration and mining in the Kakadu conservation zone by revoking current leases and licences and by incorporating the zone in Kakadu National Park.

2. Prevent proposed mining in Kakadu stages one and two by incorporating the Jabiluka and Koongarra project areas in the National Park and by proclaiming the whole park under the World Heritage Properties Conservation Act, 1983.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
