Queensland is trying to do something positive in 2016 by buying up land contributing run off that is helping to kill the Great Barrier reef.

Excellent news from Queensland’s labour Government with the buy back of coastal land to conservation.
 Remember Campbell Newman’s tenure in Queensland which saw open destruction of trees and the ecology they support let alone soaking up our carbon admissions ?  Under the Baird government the same could happen in NSW.
Consider completing the quick submission below.

Don —
Did you see the news? Turns out we’re in good company in opposing the Baird government’s plans to scrap our tree-clearing laws. One of Australia’s leading groups of scientists has also slammed the changes.

The story in the Sydney Morning Herald* makes it clear that if the government gets away with their plans, the impacts for nature will be devastating.

You only have until June 28th to make your voice count. We’ve made it easy for you to have your say online today, so please make a quick submission here.

The scientists couldn’t be more damning; they also say the changes would result in “more degraded land, more damage to river systems, increased carbon emissions, and the loss of habitat critical to the survival of threatened species.”

We can’t let these draft plans become law. Let’s demonstrate that the majority of NSW residents don’t support Premier Baird gutting our conservation laws.
