7. PROGRESS IN REAL TERMS CONT. The Northern Territory Conservation Commission is not just on some airy fairy esoteric kick for the fun of it, but rather a very deep concern for constructive rather than destructive development and the sensible use and management of our natural resources. These resources must clearly be developed if sound economic independence is to be achieved in the Territory. However, we have the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the past and we have the modern technology of today to give us a hand. Those on pastoral land, Aboriginal land, in urban centres or in places vuth high tourist numbers, all need to recognise the same message: there must be a balance between development, land use and conservation. This is progress in real terms.
