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.

    The tragic bushfires of summer and massive habitat clearing in Qld should make the protection of our precious koalas and other wildlife a top priority for the State Government. Over development and poor urban planning is a major problem in SE Qld.

    In recent years we have witnessed continuing destruction of our natural habitats and massive loss of our invaluable wildlife. The pending possible catastrophic destruction of the Toondah Wetlands (if your Government does not listen to public opinion) is a case in point . Please, stop this trend of destruction. Act now to SAVE OUR KOALAS AND THEIR HABITATS!

    Koalas will not survive as a species unless we preserve necessary habitat and food trees.

    Unsustainable development is sheer madness and driving the Koalas to extinction is immoral.

    Our Native Animals are iconic. We need to protect their habitat. They are our children and grandchildren’s heritage.

    Preventing the loss of koala habitat is the most controllable action we can take to safeguard koala populations.

    Preventing urban development in koala habitat and controlling developments near koala habitat.

    Please implement an immediate moratorium on clearing of koala habitat.
