Event description

Description

Nature in NSW is in crisis. New laws allow for devastating deforestation and broad scale land clearing of important wildlife habitat. At least 1000 species of plants and animals are facing extinction, including our iconic koala, and the destruction of their habitats is the leading threat.

As a result of these new laws, 99% of identified koala habitat on private land can be bulldozed, and a staggering 8 million hectares of forest and bushland has no protection from deforestation.

This devastation is firmly within our power to stop - join us for our Towards Zero Deforestation Roadshow!

Through a conversation style presentation, Jemilah Hallinan from the EDO NSW will give an overview of what the changes to the laws mean for nature. Daisy Barham and Shirley Hall from the Nature Conservation Council will cover how we can all work together to call for stronger laws for nature - and how you can get involved.

We’ll provide some light refreshments. If you would like to contribute by bringing a dish to share - that would be most welcomed and appreciated!

This is a free community event - all welcome.
