Great Barrier Reef by Steve Parish Budget brings green gains – June 2017 - Presented on 13 June, the 2017-18 Queensland State Budget has committed almost $275M over a five-year period to the environment. Priorities for funding include the addressing of climate change, tackling waste and protecting the Great Barrier Reef.
The habitat supported within the mine boundaries is home to a number of endangered species including the yakka skink, ornamental snake, waxy cabbage palm and the southern subspecies of the black-throated finch, pictured (image by Stanley Tang). Not time for another mine – June 2017 - With the challenges being presented by climate change, new coal mines are not what we need. Wildlife Queensland feels strongly that support for the Adani Carmichael coal mine is not only misguided but reflective of yesterday’s thinking.
