Koalas Under Threat - Community Forums

19 November, 2018

Our koalas are under threat, we need real, concrete reforms to save them. This series of events from EDO Queensland and The Wilderness Society will focus on planning laws, deforestation, and saving the koala in South East Queensland

The ever encroaching urban sprawl is seeing hectare after hectare of urban bushland and important habitat being cleared before our eyes. 

As a result, urgent action is required to save Queensland koalas, a species which, while iconic, are threatened with a death by a thousand cuts.  It’s clear that more must be done by our State and Federal representatives.

The Queensland Government recently made positive steps to tighten state laws because you called for it. However, our koalas are still in danger and our national environment laws remain weak and ineffective, with loopholes big enough to drive a bulldozer through.

The solutions are straight forward:
At a state level, there needs to be stronger laws to protect koala habitat with less exemptions for big business and clear no-go areas for our furry friends. 

The Federal Government is also responsible—they have failed to enforce the current Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act. Australia needs a new system of environmental laws with an independent environmental protection authority to enforce them. 

Come along to a hear from expert speakers, and also have a chance to have your burning questions answered.
