Why our community Cares about Creatures?:
Our federal nature laws are broken and each year more than 300,000 hectares of habitat is lost in Queensland.
We now have a once in a generation opportunity to push for strong federal nature laws that protect and restore nature, rather than allow for continual biodiversity decline. Right now, reforms of the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act are being drafted and the government needs to hear loud and clear that the community wants strong laws for our iconic creatures.
Join us as we explore what is needed from these reforms and the science behind the new legislation. The nature forum will feature leading academics and advocates. Along with a range of activities for the whole family including creating a banner that will be delivered to a federal MP.
Immersive Art Space:
A range of nature based activities involving the animals we all love and want to see protected! Facilitated by guest artist Sue Loveday.
Sue is a visual artist who believes in the power of gathering to create and share stories.
‘Together we can grow an understanding that the creatures and their homes are an important part of us'
