The Bulimba Creek Environment Fund has come to the aid of the Karawatha Forest Protection Society (KFPS).
KFPS Secretary Paula Ross spoke to ABC Brisbane’s Drive Program on Friday night about the group’s work, requirements and financial challenges. Listen back here (start at 2:15:20).
Paula said she was “jumping with joy” when she got the news about the financial support and that the money will keep the group going for the next 12 months.
As reported in article by the Southern Star earlier last week, KFPS was giving serious consideration as to whether the society can continue to operate.
The Bulimba Creek Catchment Environment Fund was established to accept tax-deductible donations in support of a community-driven commitment to deliver critical environmental outcomes through socially and ethically sensitive programs.
B4C President Michael Petter says the fund is very proud to provide this emergency financial support to the KFPS.
“Since 1991 the Karawatha Forest Protection Society has been one of the leading environment groups campaigning for bushland protection in Brisbane & Logan City areas,” Michael said.
“It saved Karawatha and adjoining forest areas from development and it initiated the highly influential Karawatha to Flinders Peak corridor concept.”
