AFK Condemns Federal Guidelines For Koala Protection

January 29, 2014

The Australian Koala Foundation has lodged a formal submission condemning the federal government’s draft Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act referral guidelines for koala protection.


The organisation’s chief executive Deborah Tabart said the guidelines were more about reducing the workload for government and developers than protecting koalas.

 

She said the guidelines would not stop a decline in koala populations “let alone help increase koala numbers”.

 

“The document is just shocking; the author appears to have little or no knowledge of how koalas move across landscapes,” she said.

 

“For example, koalas can travel for up to 20km and the guidelines imply it is only 1km.”
