Cultivating Murder is a feature documentary that tells the heart-wrenching story of the murder of Glen Turner, a public servant working for the Office of Environment and Heritage.
Glen Turner was investigating illegal land clearing when he was gunned down on the side of a public road in Croppa Creek, near Moree. The killer, Ian Turnbull, a wealthy NSW rural producer, had previously been prosecuted for illegal land clearing.
Land clearing has already resulted in massive habitat destruction and loss of native species in NSW. In 2018, the state government accelerated this process by replacing the Native Vegetation and Threatened Species laws with the cynically named Biodiversity Conservation regulations. Rather than conserving biodiversity, these laws do the exact opposite by allowing further clearing of native vegetation and ignoring the plight of threatened species.
Dr Mehreen Fahruqi, Greens MLC will take part in a Q & A after the screening.
This is an opportunity for anyone who cares about our unique and beautiful natural heritage to get together and learn more from the film and from each other.
