Felling NSW

Monday 26 March 2018

Six months have passed since laws commenced to make it easier for land owners to clear native vegetation and threatened species’ habitat yet the government still hasn’t released data on how much bush has been cleared or the promised maps specifying no-go zones.

This follows exposés that prosecutions for illegal land clearing have fallen under this government and concerns that data is hidden and compliance staff have been reduced. NSW has lost most of its biodiversity and the return to broadscale land clearing will destroy what is left. I am working with the Nature Conservation Council to expose the government’s environmental recklessness.
