Stop Baird's War On Trees

Thousands of koalas, quolls, and gliders will be killed each year if Premier Baird gets away with scrapping our land-clearing laws.

Our Premier is set to release the draft legislation any day now. We need to be ready to act fast.

Nationals MPs, developers and big agribusiness are behind a plot to let landholders trash our precious woodlands and urban bushland by tearing up our existing nature laws and replacing them with laws that will unleash a new of habitat destruction. Premier Baird’s new Biodiversity Conservation Act will:

  • add extinction pressures to our state’s 1000 threatened animal and plant species;
  • threaten our clean, reliable water supplies;
  • turn our fertile farms into wasteland through erosion and salinity;
  • put landmark trees and bushland in our towns and suburbs at risk; and
  • release millions of tonnes of carbon pollution into our atmosphere.

Without urgent action, many our species of native wildlife, including the iconic koala, will become extinct within our lifetime. By tearing up our nature laws, farmers will find it harder than ever to provide food and fibre sustainably, especially as our climate becomes hotter and drier due to climate change.
