Wildlife re­form seeks in­put

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.”
