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.

    Please introduce legislation to stop the clearing of Koala habitat in South East Queensland. Moreton regional council has allowed the devastation of our local Koala habitat. State Government legislation is required to protect our wildlife from extinction for our future generations

    This is a disgrace. It is THEIR planet as well. We as the supposedly smart species should look after our animals but all we do is treat them as a nuisance to be discarded if they get in our way . Shame, shame, shame!!!

    Seeing koalas in the wild is part of growing up in Queensland. We need to make sure urban growth and other development does not deny younger or future generations of Queenslanders to miss out on the joys of seeing koalas in their natural habitats. Koalas and their habitats must be urgently protected.

    Over development has led to destruction of koala habitat and overcrowding causing health issues that kill koalas. This is a national disgrace. Protect our cutest icon. Kathryn Dwyer

    After having our first kola on our property in 35yrs we were happy to see that they were still in our area. Having the qld dept going flying over our range and dropping baits followed up by 2yrs and then fire bombing the Proserpine range – we are lucky to have finally spotting one. It is also home to the wedge tail eagles.
