Nature in NSW is in crisis. New laws allow for devastating deforestation and broad scale land clearing of important wildlife habitat. At least 1000 species of plants and animals in NSW are facing extinction, including our iconic koala; and the destruction of their habitats is the leading threat.
As a result of these new laws, 99% of identified koala habitat on private land can be bulldozed, and a staggering 8 million hectares of forest and bushland has no protection from deforestation.
This devastation is firmly within our power to stop – join us for our Towards Zero Deforestation Roadshow!
When: Monday 23 July at 6:00-8:30 pm
Where: Cabarita Beach Sports Club Hall, Les Burger Field, Tweed Coast Road, Bogangar
Through a conversation style presentation, Jemilah Hallinan from the EDO NSW will give an overview of what the changes to the laws mean for nature. Daisy Barham and Shirley Hall from the Nature Conservation Council will cover how we can all work together to call for stronger laws for nature – and how you can get involved.
Local environment group Caldera Environment Centre is kindly co-hosting this event, and light refreshments will be provided. If you would like to contribute by bringing a dish to share, that would be most appreciated!
This is a free community event – all welcome. Please share this with your networks and friends. Together we can call on our government to take action to save our forests and bushland from bulldozers, and protect wildlife habitat.
I look forward to seeing you there!
