Save 200 Koalas From Destructive Highway Project

Koalas FotoshopTofs

Target: Josh Frydenburg, Australian Minister for the Environment and Energy

Goal: Stop the construction of a four-lane highway that would lead to the death of 200 koalas.

The Australian government announced its plan to build a four-lane highway through the current home of 200 koalas. Researchers believe that if the highway is built, this population of koalas will go extinct within 20 to 25 years.

New developments eliminate the little land left for wild animals. Building this highway will eliminate half of the koalas’ food sources and will lead to an increase in koala deaths due to car accidents. The expansion is unnecessary and will be extremely detrimental to Australia’s environment.

It is believed there might be as little as 43,000 koalas left in the wild. This new highway would quickly eliminate 200 of them. Sign this petition and demand that the government reconsider the construction of this highway.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Frydenburg,

Recently, the construction of a new four-lane highway in New South Wales has been announced. This new highway would kill 200 koalas within 20 to 25 years.

There are less than 100,000 koalas left in the wild, and some experts believe there are as little as 43,000 left. This highway would lead to more koala deaths due to car accidents, and it would eliminate half the food sources for the 200 koalas living on this land.

There is not much land left on this earth for wild creatures to live. By continuing construction of new developments, we are taking away more and more land. Soon there will be nowhere for animals to live. Please consider halting the development of this new highway.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Hasn’t Australia done enough damage to its wildlife population–often by overbuilding?! Koalas are beloved around the world. Aren’t they supposed to be prized in Australia? Why are they being threatened by the building of an unnecessary highway through koala habitat?! There is no doubt that many will be killed by cars. Is that a progressive stand for wildlife conservation?!

    DON’T KILL KOALAS!

  2. koalas first ,not this super highway now.

  3. Koalas are their heritage and should be protected at all costs so should the kangaroos and other indigenous wildlife. Stop eating kangaroos you sick people.

  4. Your insane, why would you hurt these gentle bears, God have Humans lost there minds..relocate them for GOD SAKE, I have heard so many really awful things about Australia.. I no longer even want to visit and now they want to just cast off the Koala??? Idiots at there FINEST!

  6. Australia is responsible for many deaths of their precious Wildlife. The precious Koalas are the next in line. Blood money and Greed comes before the lives of the precious Australian Wildlife.
    Australia has a lot to answer to when the Wildlife is involved.
    So please protect the Koalas and our precious Wildlife before they all become extinct.

  7. Australia, show some respect for nature & the wildlife. The koalas have every right to remain in their habitat without disturbance and destruction by humans!

  10. Considering all the petitions floating in cyberspace alone, the world is full of ignorant, non-caring morons! The world would be a better place without them!

  11. Why was it approved on your first day of office and only made public a whole month later..?!?
    Apparently, there are other options.
    Construction will not only destroy half the koala’s food trees, the commotion itself (chopping trees, building the highway) will generate fatal consequences, koalas more susceptible to death by stress than other creatures, never mind to mention inevitable death by car, a most gruesome way to die.
    The planting of about half a square mile of revegetation to make up for the trees lost includes plants which studies have shown the local koala rarely eat and one variety that’s not even local; on top of that the plantings will take four to seven years before they’re even viable for the koalas to eat.
    A population Viability Study, July 2014, indicated that if the road went ahead, this population of koalas will go extinct within the next 20- – 25 years.

    Don’t let the world lose the Ballina’s Koalas over a mere eight miles of road, eight miles is nothing. PLEASE don’t create what will be forever known, worldwide, as the “eight mile disaster”…
