Join us to push for better koala habitat protection in South East Queensland!

 

Where: Kurilpa Hall, 174 Boundary Street, West End Qld 4101

 

When: 6-8pm, Tuesday 21 January 2020

 

Habitat loss is the leading cause of koala population declines in Queensland. In addition, the fragmentation of koala habitat from clearing for sprawling development exposes koalas to the compounding threats of disease, greater chances of car strikes and dog attacks. 

 

Statewide, Queensland has lost over 43% of koala numbers and in the Koala Coast east of Brisbane, there has been an 80% decline in numbers. It is estimated that the species will go extinct by 2050 unless action is taken to reverse population declines.

 

NOW is the time to demand stronger habitat protection!

 

In response to these drastic population declines, the Queensland Government recently released a draft SEQ Koala Conservation Strategy. They are now seeking your feedback on the draft strategy.

 

We are running a Koala Community Meeting with our friends at the Queensland Conservation Council and the Environmental Defenders Office. Come along to hear directly from experts about the details of the draft strategy, raise any concerns you have and get involved to make sure we have meaningful habitat laws for koalas.

 

Together, we will make sure the strategy is as strong as possible to protect this iconic species that everyone loves. This is a great way for anyone to make a contribution, no matter your age or experience, and to meet like-minded people.

 

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact our Deforestation Campaigner, Anita Cosgrove at brisbane@wilderness.org.au or call us on 07 3846 1420.

 

See you there!
