    Action for Stronger Koala Habitat Laws

    Join us outside Parliament for threatened species day to call on the state government to urgently introduce stronger laws to protect koala habitat.  

    Koalas are on a slide to extinction and are running out of time. Unless laws are strengthened now, we could lose Queensland’s koalas. 

    The Queensland Government commissioned a Koala Expert Panel Report in 2017 and the results singled out deforestation as “the greatest impact on koalas.” Yet the state government continues to delay the release of the Koala Conservation Strategy and make the necessary changes to our planning laws. Meanwhile critical koala habitat continues to be bulldozed by developers.

    We desperately need stronger laws  that make sure our communities accommodate habitat so we can continue to live with Queensland’s most iconic species. The QLD government must act now and release the Koala Conservation Strategy and include in it all recommendations from the Koala Expert Panel report.
