The bush. There’s nothing more Australian than that. It is a part of our heritage and our soul. But even the bush is not sacrosanct when it comes to human activity. The push for clearing for development, agriculture and resource extraction does nothing but increase in pressure as population and demands for yet more extravagant life-styles grow. Hard-fought-for laws, designed to protect our precious vegetation and the extraordinary biodiversity that it supports, are being whittled away.
NQCC is committed to working with others throughout Queensland and Australia to protect our vegetation from damage and destruction. That said, during the last year or two most of our energy has gone into working on issues associated with coal mining and export, particularly the Abbot Point expansion.
Groups whose primary focus is vegetation management in our region include Coastal Dry Tropics Landcare Inc., http://www.cdtli.org.au. See our links page for others or click on this link for all our posts relating to Vegetation Management over time, beginning with the most recent.
