The NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act is set to fast-track land-clearing approvals in response to pressure from big agribusiness and a minority of landholders.

Before the election, Premier Baird committed to “enhancing the state’s biodiversity to benefit current and future generations” but the government is now weakening our nature protection laws.

Without urgent action, many our species of native wildlife, including the koala, will become extinct within our lifetime. Without better approaches to land management, farmers will find it even harder to provide food and fibre sustainably in a hotter, drier climate.

A street protest will be held to call on the Prime Minister to intervene.

10:00am Monday 14th March, outside Malcolm Turnbull’s electoral office, corner of New South Head and Edgecliff Roads, Edgecliff.
