To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:


1. We are Australians who oppose the continued destruction of the Great Daintree region.

2. We urge that the Federal Government immediately regulate to prevent any further destruction of the rainforest of the Greater Daintree region by regulating under the provisions of the World Heritage Properties Conservation Act 1983.

3. We suggest that sealing the Mulligan Highway between Cairns and Cooktown is an appropriate way of providing access to Bloomfield.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
