In The Spotlight:



Sustainable Population Australia Inc.


Sustainable Population Australia* - SPA was formed in 1988 by people who felt that the issue of population numbers was overlooked, or regarded as too contentious, by many of those striving to preserve Australia's ecological heritage.


It has held public meetings and conferences in many parts of Australia. SPA branches around the country promote SPA's ideas, study local problems, lobby politicians and recruit new members.


Some branches hold regular meetings but the main link between members is the quarterly Newsletter. This provides members with information and expert opinion to rebut the many myths about sustainability and population that one hears in conversation or sees in the press.


We are an ecological group dedicated to preserving species' habitats globally and in Australia from the degradation caused by human population growth. SPA works on many fronts to encourage informed public debate about how Australia and the world can achieve an ecologically sustainable population.


Further information:  Read an article on SPA, published in the Canberra Times in October 1998, to mark the organisation's 10th anniversary.
