A Million Acres A Year
A Million Acres A Year 
The southwest of Western Australia is one of world's most biodiverse areas. But in the last 50 years it has been the scene of environmental destruction on a massive scale. Successive governments have sold off and encouraged the clearing of millions of acres for agriculture. The long-term consequences have been devastating: severe erosion and salinity, the shattering of this priceless natural heritage and economic ruin for many farming families. Through the voices of people on the land, this compelling documentary tracks the history of this ecological disaster and reveals the impact it has had on them, the landscape and Australia's unique flora and fauna. It also looks at their attempts to turn around decades of gross mismanagement and outlines a case for a "land ethic".
