    Donate To Our Renewables Roadshow

    $1,540.00 raised
    GOAL: $10,000.00

    Renewable energy is booming in Queensland, powering our homes and bringing clean jobs with it. In fact, there’s enough renewable energy in the pipeline right now to meet 90% of our state's electricity needs*! But these projects won’t go ahead without support, so we need to make sure they happen, and fast.

    By raising awareness of the benefits of renewable energy for our communities and our environment, we can win the support needed for strong action on climate change - and keep the renewable revolution rolling!

    This Christmas donate to our Renewable Energy Roadshow, and for every $1000 we raise we’ll be able to visit another regional town - hosting public meetings, and meeting with media, mayors and MPs to spread the word about what renewable energy can do for Queensland.

    Hands Off Our National Parks

    Sign our petition to demand the Queensland Government say no to the privatisation and destruction of our National Parks.

    620 signatures
    Hinchinbrook Island, Whitsunday Island and Cooloola have been declared national parks because of their exceptional scientific, ecological, heritage and recreational values. Any changes to the land tenure of those national parks will lessen the protection of those exceptional values.
    Public opinion, actively demonstrated over decades, indicates that citizens believe that areas declared as National Parks form a vital part of the state's heritage for all to enjoy.
    We call upon Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, and Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Leeanne Enoch, to ensure that:
    • The whole of Hinchinbrook Island, Whitsunday Island and Cooloola National Parks are retained as national park with no private development within them; 
    • The three national parks are properly managed so as to protect their exceptional values; and
    • No private development is permitted within any of Queensland's national parks.

  • signed Save SEQ Koalas 2017-06-24 10:20:38 +1000
    Koala habitat in the Logan Country region is being removed at an alarming rate.

    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.
