To help bring an end to large scale clearing in Qld, click here.
We thought we had seen an end to images of bulldozers dragging long chains – with links as big as cars – to clear native trees. But we are now witnessing the return of large scale clearing in Queensland, a return to the bad old days.
Olive Vale in Cape York is just one example out of many clearing permits currently in the pipeline. Despite findings that the clearing in this area was improperly approved – and with 32,000 hectares of native bushland on the chopping block – the clearing here continues. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Several threatened bird species will be affected and agricultural runoff is likely to affect important turtle and dugong habitats in the Great Barrier Reef.
The Queensland Government promised to put a stop to this senseless clearing, but is yet to act! Together, we can stop the destruction of hundreds of thousands of hectares of bushland across Queensland.
