Crack Down on Deforestation to Save Endangered Species

Target: Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier of Queensland

Goal: Fine farmers who illegally cleared Australia’s rare forests, destroying the homes of endangered species.

Deforestation in Queensland, Australia is the highest it has ever been after tens of thousands of hectares of land were illegally cleared by farmers within the past year. Farmers did not obtain the government approval needed to clear land, thus defying federal regulations.

Deforestation increased over 30 percent within the last year. This land clearing has threatened endangered species and the Great Barrier Reef. The government has required all farmers consult its legislative body before clearing land, but these regulations have gone ignored.

With deforestation in Australia at an all-time high, the farmers who have defied the government and destroyed the habitat of countless endangered species must be held accountable. Sign the petition and demand that these farmers be fined for their actions.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Premier Palaszczuk,

Farmers in Queensland have knowingly defied your government’s conservation regulations. Without consulting the federal government, they have cleared thousands of hectares of land. Countless endangered species have been put at risk and the Great Barrier Reef faces yet another threat.

Deforestation in your country is at an all-time high. If the farmers who have defied your conservation laws aren’t held accountable, deforestation will only hasten the destruction of your nation’s rare forests. I ask that these farmers be fined so that they understand the seriousness of their crimes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
