You are being called to lobby NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and her new Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton as they prepare to mark out their first significant environmental direction.
Uncontrolled land clearing is a contentious issue in NSW as it poses a threat to native animals such as Koalas.
The following request is taken from a broader document on the web site Stand Up For Nature.
“The NSW Government has just released the final details of the new tree clearing legislation. These details are called ‘Regulations and Codes’. There is now a 6-week consultation period during which time the Government is seeking your views. This is the very first important environment decision our new Premier Gladys Berejiklian and her Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton will have to make.
Please join us in calling on our new Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton to make sure that koala habitat and all threatened ecosystems are off limits to tree clearing. You can call Minister Upton’s office on (02) 8574 6107 and leave a message for her staff to pass on to her.”
