Wildlife Queensland has welcomed the announcement that Retail First, owner of 20 shopping centres across south-east Queensland, will ban the use of helium balloons, and calls for other retailers to follow suit.
‘Mother Elephant’ Sharon Pincott inspired a 78-strong gathering of women (and some very brave and supportive men) as guest speaker at WPSQ’s recent Wild Women Brunch for Wildlife in honour of International Women’s Day 2017. Our MC on the day, Samantha Morris, reports on Sharon’s moving presentation.
Wildlife Queensland is excited to be celebrating women in wildlife conservation and International Women’s Day 2017 with a special brunch featuring guest speaker Sharon Pincott, internationally acclaimed wildlife warrior and author of Elephant Dawn. Get your tickets now!
Wildlife Queensland appears at the public hearing on the Stock Route Network Management Bill 2016, and awaits the recommendations of the Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources Committee and the fate of the Bill in the house.
