Brisbane - Land Clearing Campaign Training

Volunteers, members and supporters of The Wilderness Society are invited to attend our free 2-day Land Clearing Campaign training course.

Australia is home to some of the most unique and magnificent nature in the world. Yet, it is one of the worst developed countries for broadscale land clearing – killing tens of millions of native animals (including threatened species) and wiping out endangered forests and woodlands.

Queensland is experiencing one of the worst land clearing crises at the moment, with a GABBA sized area of native bushland being cleared every 3 minutes. Koalas, which are vulnerable to extinction, alone lost over 40,000 hectares of habitat in just two years following the weakening of land clearing controls in 2012.

Land clearing has doubled since the Campbell Newman Government changed land clearing laws in 2013. The answer to one of the state’s greatest environmental challenges is surprisingly simple – strengthen the laws which protect nature.

This unique event will give you an opportunity to learn more about the land clearing campaign, how to get engaged and how to maximise your impact. The trainer will be an international expert in campaigning, the Wilderness Society’s national community organising manager Damian Ogden.

Join us to put our collective power into action to stop the land clearing crisis in Queensland before the end of 2017.
