Join us outside Parliament for threatened species day to call on the state government to urgently introduce stronger laws to protect koala habitat.
Koalas are on a slide to extinction and are running out of time. Unless laws are strengthened now, we could lose Queensland’s koalas.
The Queensland Government commissioned a Koala Expert Panel Report in 2017 and the results singled out deforestation as “the greatest impact on koalas.” Yet the state government continues to delay the release of the Koala Conservation Strategy and make the necessary changes to our planning laws. Meanwhile critical koala habitat continues to be bulldozed by developers.
We desperately need stronger laws that make sure our communities accommodate habitat so we can continue to live with Queensland’s most iconic species. The QLD government must act now and release the Koala Conservation Strategy and include in it all recommendations from the Koala Expert Panel report.
Join others from your community on Saturday 12 October from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm for the final Greater Brisbane Forum of 2019!
This final forum is not to be missed as QCC will share our proposal for Greater Brisbane Environment Advocacy Network (Greater BEAN) initiatives we plan to get funding for in 2020. Your input to these initiatives will help shape the vision for how QCC will support the Greater BEAN to become a strong network!
As a result of our work together on the Greater Brisbane Project over the past 10 months, QCC has decided to get behind supporting the development of a network as we believe this could be the most effective way to move forward together.
The only way we can make the Greater BEAN strong enough to tackle the big issues facing the wildlife and places we love is to bring people like you together more often to share experience, skills and ideas so that we can collaborate on how we deliver strategic and coordinated actions that will win change.
“Unless we are a diverse group, the huge diversity of issues we are facing won’t be solved,” (anonymous forum participant, 2019).
If you haven’t yet added your voice, come along to the final forum - you'll be glad you did! We'll share how our conversations with fellow environmentalists so far have shaped our proposal for future coordinated advocacy through establishing a strong network, and we’ll engage your input on the core initiatives we think are important to build the network's foundation.
Be sure to register today so you don’t miss it!

Queensland Conservation Council is turning 50, and to help celebrate this significant milestone we are hosting a special dinner to celebrate.
The 50th Anniversary Dinner is an opportunity for our supporters, both past and present, to connect or reconnect and celebrate the last 50 years of great triumphs (and a few sad defeats) with an eye for the next 50 years.
The event is being held on Saturday 19th October at the Victoria Park Golf Course, starting at 6:30pm.
Tickets are $75 for an adult, $50 for concession (student/pensioner/health care card holder) which includes -
- A delicious vegetarian meal
- Complimentary drink on arrival (with cash bar available on the night)
- A few short speeches
- Live music
Come and hear about QCC's plans for the future, how we can grow stronger to tackle the growing threats that face us over the next 50 years. How we can continue to be a hub for the Queensland environment movement, and welcome the next generation of nature guardians.
We look forward to seeing you on the night, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. Dress code will be smart casual - but if you would like to add sparkle we won’t mind.
