John Frois signed Save SEQ Koalas 2017-08-14 13:02:57 +1000It’s a disgrace that governments need to be continuously reminded to do the right thing by our natural environment, our fellow creatures and by extension our planet, the only liveable world we know. Governments are obviously in the pockets of greedy corporations, who only care about profits and don’t give a damn about the future, which will hit us like a ton of bricks if we don’t change our rapacious habits.
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.
