We can't win the fight to protect our native wildlife and environments without as widespread support as possible. All the research has shown that most people care deeply about protecting our environment - as soon as they know it's under threat. The challenge is spreading the message and communicating just how bad land clearing has gotten.
Will you take the pledge to have just FIVE conversations with your friends, family, and colleagues about the damage out of control land clearing is doing to our environment?Sign up
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.
