I’m one of the 92 percent of Queenslanders who think our Outback is a big part of our state’s history, culture and identity*
Outback Queensland’s diverse landscapes support unique wildlife and hard-working families on the land.
Our Outback is also one of the last great regions of nature left on Earth.
But the health of Outback Queensland is under threat. Feral animals and noxious weeds are spreading rapidly, while destructive fires threaten property and nature.
There are three ways you can support people and nature in our Outback:
- Supporting landholders to care for their land by expanding the Nature Refuges program.
- Growing the successful Indigenous Rangers program
- Creating new well-managed National Parks for all Queenslanders to enjoy.
I ask you to invest in these successful programs to support people and nature in Outback Queensland.
