    At present we have the proverbial perfect storm for the eradication of our iconic Koala. Land clearing/habitat loss, injury by dogs, foxes and cars. climate change with forest fires, and clamidia have led to a rapid decline of our State emblem, the object of many a tourist’s attention.. Please

    implement a moratorium on any clearing in south-east Queensland

    declare the koala ‘Endangered’ in south-east Queensland

    prioritise koala and habitat protection in new planning rules


    Or go down in history for failing to save our Koalas.

    Sign the petition: Palaszczuk government, save SEQ Koalas

    Stand with us in calling on the Palaszczuk government to stop the clearing of koala habitat in Southeast Queensland. 

    An expert panel report has shown that past efforts to protect the koala, which is Queensland’s official animal emblem, have failed. Up to 80% of the koala population in Southeast Queensland has been lost in just 20 years due to destruction of woodland habitat, traffic issues and domestic dog attacks

    The koala now faces the prospect of extinction in the wild in Southeast Queensland.

    The State Government needs to take urgent action and immediately:

    • implement a moratorium on any clearing in south-east Queensland
    • declare the koala ‘Endangered’ in south-east Queensland
    • prioritise koala and habitat protection in new planning rules

    Send a clear message that more needs to be done urgently to protect our state emblem.

    Sign the petition below.
