LawJam 15: Must Development Cost Us Our Koalas? (Brisbane)

Cars, culls, canines and chlamydia - there's a lot for a koala to bear these days!

Join EDO Qld for an overview of the current legislative framework around koala protection, an insight into its weaknesses, and a look at what has to change to ensure the survival and safety of our cuddly compatriots. Hear from a lawyer, a scientist and a grassroots campaigner as we grapple with the question: must development cost us our koalas?
