Native Fauna and Flora

To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of certain citizens and residents of Australia draws to the attention of the House a request to the House to direct the Minister for the Environment to:

PROTECT our Vulnerable KOALAS, Endangered QUOLLS and Endangered vegetation MELALEUCA

IRBYANA on the proposed North Maclean Enterprise Precinct (NMEP). There have been numerous sightings of Koalas, Spotted-tailed Qualls and other threatened species on and around the proposed industrial site, but NO DETAILED SURVEYS OR STUDIES PERFORMED. Industry at North Maclean

will forever change a peaceful rural-residential environment to a treeless industrial wasteland, devoid of wildlife.

We therefore ask the House to direct the Minister for the Environment to: CONSIDER the impact of industry:

on vulnerable/endangered species on and around the proposed 117 hectare NMEP site to be cleared. There have been NO DETAILED IMPACT ASSESSMENTS on these species including koalas and quoits, nor COMMUNITY CONSULTATION nor SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTS.

on pollution (noise, water, air, light). Most local residents have rainwater as their sole water source for drinking/cooking. There have been NO IMPACT STUDIES on these issues. The waterways on the site flow directly into the Logan River. There has been NO REPORT that considers the Impact on waterways, the Logan River or Moreton Bay and its fish/prawn breeding-grounds.

AND

REJECT the developers' application for Development at 4499-4651 Mt Lindesay Highway, North Maclean, QLD.
