Koala populations have dropped by 80% over the last 20 years largely due to land clearing, traffic and dog attacks.
We want Planning Minister Jackie Trad to take urgent action to save koalas by defending their remaining habitat, but we need your help to make it happen.
Will you chip-in to help this campaign go full-scale?
Julie Lloyd-Blessing signed Save SEQ Koalas via Robyn Whale 2020-05-11 10:14:58 +1000In recent years we have witnessed continuing destruction of our natural habitats and massive loss of our invaluable wildlife. The pending possible catastrophic destruction of the Toondah Wetlands (if your Government does not listen to public opinion) is a case in point . Please, stop this trend of destruction. Act now to SAVE OUR KOALAS AND THEIR HABITATS!
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.
