The DSSG recently co-hosted a Climate and Reef Awareness Day on Four Mile Beach, Port Douglas as part of the National Day of Action with the Stop Adani Douglas Shire group. As part of this day of action, the DSSG provided template letters addressed to the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP (Federal Minister for Energy and Environment) and the Hon Barnaby Joyce MP (Minister for Resources and Northern Australia).

There was a high demand for these letters on the day and many expressions of interest.

As such we have provided the templates here. All you have to do is print, fill out you details and post to the address provided.

The mail addresses are shown on each letter. Unfortunately it is difficult to contact federal Ministers by email, but we have also shown email addresses. If you use email, both Ministers will ask you to complete a contact form, but it appears only Minister Frydenberg allows an attachment to be made to the contact form.
