Copy & Paste and email to the Prime Minister asking for the Koala Protection Act:
Dear Prime Minister,
As a member of the Australian Koala Foundation’s Koala Army, I am writing to ask will you support the Koala Protection Act?
It has been written in conjunction with Australian and overseas lawyers and is based on the Bald Eagle Act, which sought and achieved the protection of the American icon.
The Koala Protection Act will work. It will not be an impediment to industry, particularly if industry decides to do the right thing and produce excellent environmental reports. In these times of changing climate, protecting Australia’s Koala forests is not only vital for the Koala and the millions of other species that reside in these huge forests, but crucial for the planet.
Your Government knows that the existing legislation is inadequate and whilst we acknowledge you think there is time to make the EPBC Act fit for purpose, we do not believe the Koalas has the luxury of that time.
You have the power to table to ask your Environment Minister to table the Koala Protection Act in Parliament for the good of the nation. Your electoral recent in May 2022 was in part to the Australian people believing that your Government cares for the environment and is intent on change. We are confident the Koala needs protection right now, and indeed the globe.
We seek your support to Save the Koala.
