In this program, we find out about the Conservation Council of SA and its response to the findings of the South Australian Royal Commission into the Nuclear Fuel Cycle.
In February 2015, the South Australian Government announced a Royal Commission into the Nuclear Fuel Cycle. Then in May 2016, this Royal Commission recommended that a high-level international waste dump should be built in South Australia.
There has been a long history of struggle in South Australia against uranium mining, the development of nuclear energy and the dumping of nuclear waste; and there are more questions than answers when it comes to setting up a high-level international radioactive waste dump in this State.
The Conservation Council of South Australia – Conservation SA – has been a key organisation in the campaign against a nuclear dump.
To find out more, we chat with Craig Wilkins, the Chief Executive of Conservation SA.
