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.

    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.

    Our government is a disgrace, if we do not protect this national treasure, noone will.

    As a wildlife carer it is so disheartening to see what we are doing to our koalas and other wildlife.

    It is difficult for a minority government as we have seen with trying to reinstate the VMA.
