Week of Action

Did you know 77% of people want to see the creation of more national parks in Queensland? Just like you the majority of Queenslanders love national parks and other protected areas for their natural beauty, for a place to relax, connect to Country and of course the critical role they play in protecting our unique plants and wildlife. 

Our vision is to double Queensland's protected areas by 2030 in well managed parks, private protected areas and Indigenous Protected Areas with inclusive, collaborative and well-funded management arrangements.

Now is the time for action! Across Australia and Queensland, our elected representatives are increasingly backing the call to protect more of nature. However, they need to hear from you. We need to stand together and actively demonstrate broad and diverse support for doubling QLD’s protected areas. By doing this our elected representatives will hear us loud and clear, protecting beautiful QLD is a priority and they must act now. 

Sign up to take part in the Protect Beautiful Queensland week of action between the 20th - 28th of April by:

Digital Action - Head out into nature and take a photo of yourself with a "Protect Beautiful QLD because…" sign. Share your photo here and follow the prompts to share our map with your Member of Parliament. 

Host an event - Increase your impact by bringing your friends, family and community together for a fun nature themed event to celebrate nature and demonstrate active community support. This could be a birdwatch, mini bioblitz, bushwalk, picnic, film screening or nature art workshop just as some examples. Maybe it an event you are already running or going along to, make it a Protect Beautiful Queensland event by getting attendees to participants taking part in the digital action.
