Steve Bedford commented on 1 million hectares of bush, forest & trees razed since Newman’s LNP government let loose the bulldozers 2017-05-21 20:11:09 +1000Fantastic, the only way to counter the considerable power of the nature-hating far right is to consolidate and use the combined resources of these awesome conservation groups to educate the public about the real cost of land clearing to the natural landscape and its wildlife. Right-wing political parties like the National Party, One Nation and the despicable Shooter, Fishers & Farmers and also the Liberal Democrats despise nature and would erase every last piece of bush if given a chance. They practice an extreme form of the shallow ecological philosophy and view nature purely as a resource for humans, having no intrinsic value in itself. They hate national parks and conservation in general, viewing parks as good productive land that is “locked up” (their favourite term). Unfortunately a large section of our population hold these views. ps… I really wish that QCC wouldn’t use grey font in their articles (hard to read).
Steve Bedford signed Save SEQ Koalas 2017-03-20 11:41:23 +1000The only species I would to see become extinct in south-east QLD are property developers.
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.
