Large-scale deforestation and land clearing is once again on the rise in Australia, thanks to the severe weakening of laws by reckless state governments.
Over the past four years alone, over one million hectares have been bulldozed in Queensland—that’s an area the size of the MCG being destroyed every three minutes—making Australia one of the worst developed countries in the world for broadscale deforestation.
We have to stop the bulldozers urgently. The scale and pace of climate change demands that Australia implement as many viable solutions as quickly as possible.
By stopping habitat destruction and restoring the land, we can protect homes for our native wildlife and store massive amounts of carbon that would otherwise be in the atmosphere.
