LawJam 17: What can we do to protect koalas in Queensland?

 

This is the question we are putting to a panel of highly koala-fied experts. And it's a question we're asking you!

Our expert panel consists of:

  • Revel Pointon, Law Reform Solicitor, Environmental Defenders Office Qld. Find out more ...
  • Dr Jon Hanger, Managing Director and Wildlife Veterinarian, Endeavour Veterinary Ecology. Find out more ...
  • Julie O'Connor, Senior Conservation Partnerships Officer, Sunshine Coast Council.
  • Carolyn Beaton, Vice-President, Queensland Koala Crusaders. 
  • Malcolm Eadie, Managing Director, Netgain Environments.

Ask us: what tools exist in legislation, which can be used by the community to protect koalas? How can we improve the current legislation to make it more effective? How can offset policy be improved? What opportunities are there for the community to participate in planning processes? How will the proposed changes to the EPBC act affect your right to protect koalas? How can you get involved in campaigning at a community level?

Join EDO Qld & Sunshine Coast Environment Council as we slug out some solutions to the crisis gripping koala populations in Queensland, and hammer out a plan of action!
