The Government's Biodiversity Conservation Bill will not protect our precious wildlife. This planned legislation reveals the Barnett government's contempt for environmental values, and our state's precious much loved wildlife.
There is no provision requiring the Minister to consider scientific evidence in making what are, in effect, life or death decisions for endangered species such as Carnaby's cockatoo and the numbat.
This Government consistently ignores scientific advice and continues to allow the destruction of nesting hollows for the endangered black cockatoos and of critical numbat habitat in State controlled logging operations.
The survival of some of the most vulnerable ecosystems in the world is dangerously compromised.
