Only 8% of Queensland is protected in National Parks, even though the international standard recommends that at least 17% must be protected to conserve biodiversity and nature. But even this is is too much for some, who are pushing to sell out parts of our National Parks to private, for-profit developers. Sign our petition to demand the Queensland Government say no to the privatisation and destruction of our National Parks.
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. Sign our petition calling on the Palaszczuk Government to take urgent action to protect our emblem species.
Australia has gone without a plan to protect our wildlife for too long. The number of threatened and extinct animals continues to rise, with nearly 200 species already lost in Queensland in 2015, that we know of. Make a submission and tell the Australian Government that protecting our vulnerable species is big issue.
