The bush. There’s nothing more Australian than that. It is a part of our heritage and our soul. But even the bush is not sacrosanct when it comes to human activity. The push for clearing for development, agriculture and resource extraction does nothing but increase in pressure as population and demands for yet more extravagant life-styles grow. Hard-fought-for laws, designed to protect our precious vegetation and the extraordinary biodiversity that it supports, are being whittled away.
NQCC is committed to working with others throughout Queensland and Australia to protect our vegetation. That said, during the last year or two most of our energy has gone into working on issues associated with coal mining and export, particularly the proposed Adani mine in the Galilee Basin and its associated Abbot Point port expansion.
