Jack Green is a celebrated Borroloola Elder and artist whose paintings on the cultural and environmental damage wrought by invasive mining in the Gulf are held in many national and international collections.

In 2015 he was recognised with the Australian Conservation Foundation’s Peter Rawlinson award for lifetime achievement in the protection of country and culture  from reckless mining.

Jack has made available a limited run of high quality reproductions of his artwork Trying to Protect Our Land to raise a fighting fund for the community to obtain independent scientific research to support the case for mine closure.

Trying to Protect Our Land is a brilliantly detailed depiction of the spirited resistance that seeks to have lands damaged by mining returned to Aboriginal custodianship and responsible management.

Take home the story of Gulf clan’s resistance to reckless mining and keep the fight to protect the McArthur River strong.
