Have you heard about the NSW BIODIVERSITY REVIEW?

The Independent Biodiversity Legislation Review Panel presented its final report to the NSW Minister for the Environment on 18 December 2014. The report detailed recommendations to improve the legislative and policy framework for biodiversity conservation and native vegetation management in New South Wales. The Baird Government agreed to implement these recommendations.

Now this might sound all right, but given the track record on the environment by our governments, what's the real story? Why are National Parks Association of NSW and conservation organisations so concerned?

Corinne Fisher will join us to explain how the plans could:

  • Place landmark trees and bushland at risk and renew broadscale land clearing across the state;
  • Increase extinction pressures to the state's 1000 threatened species;
  • Threaten clean reliable water supplies will be threatened;
  • Degrade fertile farmland through deforestation leading to erosion and salinity; and
  • Undermine Australia's ability to meet its carbon pollution reduction targets.

Doors open at 6.30pm when you can check out our library and reuse-swap table. Members are free, visitors just $5. Bring a coffee mug and join us for supper afterwards.
