I hope people don't mind this group email, in the interests of efficiency.

You have probably heard about the open cut mines that have been proposed near Cullen Bullen in Ben Bullen State Forest (and proposed Gardens of Stone Stage 2 reserve - GoS2). The Coalpac Consolidation Project and Pinedale exansion together propose to destroy about 1300 ha of forest and threaten superb pagoda terrain. More proposals will probably follow.

Local communities and conservation groups are vigorously opposing these open-cut developments. I have been asked by the GoS2 committee (an alliance of BMConSoc, Colong Foundation and Lithgow Enviro Group) to prepare a small print run colour book to highlight the natural values of the forest. The idea is to use this 'lobby book' to influence politicians and other decision makers. I am doing this as a volunteer, and also providing complimentary photos. I am now chasing more images.

My particular purpose in writing to you folk is to try and get some wildlife images to include in the book, which are sorely needed and hard to find (I have one - a Broad-headed Snake).

Are you able and willing to help? All images will of course be acknowledged, and all contributors will get a copy of the book.

Since wildlife images are 'generic', they don't have to be from the subject area, as long as the species is found there (and the shot isn't too obviously from somewhere else, or in an urban/rural setting). 'Iconic' and threatened spp are best of all. And I'd love to include some wildlife sketches/artwork as well as photos.

If you can help, please get back to me and I'll send you details including a list of spp.

Thanks very much for considering this request.

Thanks so much for offering images to assist the case against open-cut coal mining in the proposed Gardens of Stone reserve.

I have now waded through the enviro assessment docs and come up with a list of proven inhabitants that might be good to include in the 'lobby book' (see below).

It includes both threatened and 'common' species.

We really need to show that this isn't just a beautiful landscape/patch of bush, but its alive with a rich diversity of animals and plants - and well over 1000 ha of their habitat will be eliminated.

Many thanks for anything you can come up with. You can email small jpegs initially if you like, but I will eventually (ie. soon) need full res tiffs (or reasonably high res jpegs at least) for any selected images, which can be sent to my address below. What I use will depend on what I can get!

cheers, Ian
