The Joint Report was released on “National Threatened Species Day” – 7th September.
RSPCA Queensland records show that rescues of forest-dependent wildlife more than tripled from 2,331 in 2011 to 7,950 in 2016, with much of this increase put down to habitat destruction.
Bulldozing of forests in Queensland has killed tens of millions of the wild Australian animals living there.
Why are we allowing this to happen? Who is responsible for allowing this to happen?
Scientists estimate tree-clearing in Queensland now kills 34 million animals each year: 900,000 mammals like koalas, possums, flying foxes and gliders, 2.6 million birds like cockatoos and 30.6 million reptiles including goannas, dragons, skinks and native geckos.
Koalas are front and centre of this animal welfare crisis and we all must do something to halt the carnage that has our native vegetation and wildlife on a fast track to extinction.
We are fast losing what makes Queensland, “Queensland”.

Run baby turtle run…good luck little one!
