Koalas - Queensland Conservation Council

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.

    What will it take to protect our koalas from man and his insatiable need to despoil everything in his reach. Shameful!

    The leaders of this continent, the decision makers and members of local and regional councils across Australia need to and must step up. Accountability must be faced, accepted and embraced by the aforementioned for that which they take.


    The aforementioned take money and benefit from the collection of rates generated by newly developed residential and or industrial areas that were once rich and vital habitat for our precious wildlife.


    The aforementioned have a responsibility to protect that which they so willingly sell off and take money for. They have failed this responsibility.

    To allow animals to suffer to the point of extinction in this day & age there’s something very wrong. Policies need to be implemented to ensure our native Australians always have a home & an environment they can thrive in
