Going to the Prom

For years, I've heard about an amazing landscape in southeastern Australia, Wilson's Promontory . The Aussie national park has always been mentioned as a very special place in a land of many special places that dot that vast country. I've never been there but The Prom has generated considerable interest lately as a centerpiece for conservation efforts against development.

Recently, a public campaign was held at Wilson's Promontory where 1200 people created a sparkling sign on the beach that spelled out ‘HANDS OFF PARKS!’ to help bring attention to inappropriate developments in Australian national parks. This is the kind of non-confrontational protest that can really generate results.



Shine a Light for Parks when you go to the Prom sounds like a good thing to do!
