End Deforestation Near Great Barrier Reef

Target: Annastacia Palaszczuk, MP, Premier of Queensland

Goal: End deforestation of land near Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Deforestation of land near Queensland, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has grown by over 45 percent. Over 1 million acres of trees have been cleared in and around Queensland, including the forests where rainwater flows into the Great Barrier Reef.

This immense deforestation will have disastrous effects on the ecosystem and the endangered species it is home to. Sediment and pollution is running off into the Great Barrier Reef, increasing the amount of coral that is killed. Air pollution is also increasing.

The deforestation in and around the forests of Queensland must be brought to an end. Currently, land-clearing restrictions are not in place. Sign the petition and demand that regulations be put in place to protect Queensland’s air, land, and water.


Dear Premier Palaszczuk,

Deforestation in Queensland is increasing at a rapid pace. Deforestation of the forests bordering the Great Barrier Reef increased by over 45 percent. Millions of trees were destroyed. Sediment runoff has increased, killing coral in the reefs. In addition, air pollution has increased due to a rise in greenhouse gases.

No regulations are in place. Land-clearing is not restricted. Enforcing laws that limit deforestation is the only way to protect the air, land, and water from future destruction. It is the only way to save endangered species from death. I ask that you work to enact regulations that end deforestation in Queensland.
