Wildlife reform seeks input
QUEENSLANDERS are invited to have their say as part of a review into the management of the state’s protected animals.
Environment Minister Dr Steven Miles said the public had an opportunity to assist in reforming the regulation of Queensland’s native wildlife.
“We are seeking feedback to help improve conservation outcomes and remove unnecessary regulatory burden,” he said.
“It is about protecting our unique and diverse wildlife, while allowing for ecologically sustainable use of protected animals.”
A discussion paper has been developed and can be viewed by visiting http://www.qld.gov.au/ environment/plantsanimals/wildlife-permits/ framework-review/.
Submissions close Friday, July 29.
