Act now: Save freshwater wildlife!


Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland (Wildlife Queensland) is the longest-running and one of the most respected wildlife conservation organisations in Queensland. For more than 60 years we’ve worked to protect and conserve at-risk species and habitats, advocating for better environmental policy, delivering vital on-ground conservation programs, and raising awareness of wildlife conservation issues through education and community engagement.

Ban enclosed yabby traps in Queensland now!

Enclosed yabby traps (opera house nets) continue to cause the horrific drowning deaths of our native aquatic wildlife, including platypus, rakali and turtles. The current regulations are insufficient and confusing, as evidenced by illegal usage and disregard for the law.

Following the lead of other states in banning these traps in all waters, Wildlife Queensland calls for a comprehensive ban on the sale, possession and use of enclosed yabby traps in Queensland.
