I move that the Senate:
1. notes the importance of protecting valuable agricultural, residential and conservation land from unconventional gas activities;
2. supports the right of landholders and local residents to say "no" to unconventional gas exploration and mining in their communities;
3. recognises the concerns expressed by communities in the South East of South Australia over potential groundwater contamination from unconventional gas activities; and
4. congratulates the South East Local Government Association in South Australia for standing up for their local communities and voting for a moratorium on unconventional gas.
