Newnham Hotel & Function Centre, 516 Newnham Rd, Upper Mount GravattThe current legislation that is meant to conserve our precious environment is failing us - as well as our iconic flora and fauna that we, and so many people worldwide, adore. Queensland’s environmental laws must be changed now to secure the protection of our native forests – and in turn, the health and wellbeing of entire communities. Come along to a presentation co-hosted by Wilderness Society and the Environmental Defenders Office Queensland. Learn how you can help end this crisis by demanding stronger environmental legislation. Gain valuable knowledge and skills needed to have your concerns heard by Queensland decision-makers - to stop clearing of koala habitat and your favourite urban green spaces. Free but bookings required (via above eventbrite link).
