Baird’s ‘koala extermination program’ condemned – Echonetdaily


‘Stand up for koalas or they won’t survive in the wild’ is the warning call from the North East Forest Alliance (NEFA).

(photo by Rob McIntyre) The NSW Government is carrying out a koala extermination program. It really can’t be seen as anything else. It is gutting protections for koalas in all the relevant legislation’ said NEFA spokesperson Dailan Pugh.

Mr Pugh was speaking out after the state government’s contentious Biodiversity Conservation bill passed parliament last week.

‘On Thursday Premier Baird opened up an estimated 2.2 million hectares of identified koala habitat on private land for clearing under his new ‘equity codes’. Although there is clearly no ‘equity’ for koalas.

petition: New South Wales: Protect Koalas Now!

petition: New South Wales: Protect Koalas Now!
"There is a choice that must be made: do we want to protect koalas, or do we want to allow logging and land-clearing to drive them to extinction?" -Oisin Sweeney, Ecologist with National Parks Association of New South Wales.

Koala bear habitats are under attack as the government is failing to protect them in New South Wales. According to the Australian Koala Foundation, these beloved animals are in vulnerable status while their population declines... and we need to do everything we can to protect them. With three new policies that provide a threat to koala habitats, the government of New South Wales should be protecting koalas, not placing them in further danger. One of these policies can eliminate 2.2 million hectares of koala habitat. Please sign to tell the New South Wales Government to protect koala habitats!

A man looking out across the rainforest canopyNew York-based investors are eyeing Cameroon’s rainforests for industrial-scale oil palm plantations. U.S. diplomats strong-armed the Cameroonian government into pushing the project through against the will of the local people, who are fighting to keep the bulldozers at bay. Tell Cameroon to reject the project once and for all.

A series of inspections, authorized by the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) & conducted by experts from prominent veterinary colleges & PETA India, have revealed widespread suffering & neglect of thousands of horses, donkeys, mules.. https://youtu.be/BK1dBEcjlgY
