Ask our politicians to grow our Outback national park network

Well-managed national parks are vital for nature conservation in Queensland, safeguarding habitat for our unique wildlife. National parks are also much-loved by the many Queenslanders who regularly enjoy getting out and exploring our diverse state.

But investment in new national parks has stalled and Queensland is now lagging seriously behind other states.

More than 80 percent of Queenslanders would like to see greater investment into our national park network, through the creation of new, well-managed national parks*.

Expanding and better managing our national parks will give more Queenslanders a chance to get out and explore nature, while offering new opportunities for tourism ventures - leading to job creation in rural and remote areas. It would also mean protecting more precious habitat for the native plants and animals of our Outback to thrive in.

Sign the petition to Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch and Treasurer Jackie Trad, CC your local MP, asking them to create opportunities for people and nature in Outback Queensland by expanding our Outback national park network.

    Dear Environment Minister, Treasurer and [your local MP’s name will be automatically entered],

    I’m one of more than 80 percent of Queenslanders who’d like to see greater investment into our national park network, through the creation of new, well-managed national parks. (Galaxy Research, November 2017)

    Well-managed national parks are vital to protect nature and save our threatened species. They also help connect us to nature, providing places to relax and unwind.

    But investment in new Outback national parks has stalled and Queensland is now lagging seriously behind other states.

    Expanding and better managing our national parks will give more Queenslanders a chance to get out and explore nature, while offering new opportunities for tourism, leading to job creation in rural and remote areas.

    The health of our Outback is under threat. Feral animals and noxious weeds are spreading rapidly, while destructive fires threaten property and nature. I want to see more investment in programs that are proven to help both people and nature.

    That’s why I call on you to invest in growing our network of well-managed national parks.

     

    Yours faithfully,
