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.

    Koala’s are precious…a national icon we must protect…enough of destroying their natural habitat. We have such a poor track record when it comes to protecting our wildlife, if we lose the Koala it will be a travesty. Sign to save them becoming extinct and just a memory. Seeing one in the wild is becoming a real rarity.

    We have to save what few native animals we have. Be on the right side of history not the side that profits at the expense of biodiversity

    Sick of the continuing silent violence and murder. The planning system as it is, is a criminal network to make people rich or successful by avoiding responsibility.
