Queensland has been rated as a “contemporary hot spot” for land clearing and is on par with places like Brazil, a new study has found.

The paper published today has found the parts of Queensland that have been cleared the most in the past, are also being cleared the most now.

Remote areas including the Cape York Peninsula are also being cleared.

Dr April Reside from the University of Queensland (UQ) said drastic changes are needed to save species and protect habitat.

“Land clearing in Queensland is the highest that it has been in the last 10 years,” Dr Reside said.

“We have 95 threatened species of animal, 12 threatened species of plant that are impacted by land clearing.”

Dr Reside said practices such as thinning, where up to 75 per cent of vegetation in an area can be cleared, is regulated by the landowner.

I just signed this petition — will you?

Dear Friends, I just added the petition "Stop The Light Rail Project". It would mean a lot to me if you took a moment to add your name because:

Westconnex and Light Rail Problems: Solved!

Save Our Sydney Green Spaces! #sosgreenspaces

The Animal, Tree And Homeless Campaign.

To my dear fellow Australians,

Apparently the cost of Westconnex in Sydney will be something like $45 Billion which will encourage thousands more cars onto our congested roads, increase traffic congestion and kill Sydney trees and green spaces. For $45 Billion we could buy 90,000 buses, which would take 9 million cars off the road, and save our green spaces. Problem: Solved.

Apparently the cost of the Sydney Light Rail will be $3 Billion to install and operate 30 trams, which will cut public transport capacity, increase traffic congestion and kill Sydney trees and green space. For $3 Billion, we can buy 6,000 buses to take 600,000 cars off the road and save our green space. Problem: Solved.

Please, cancel the contracts, save our city from economic, environmental and social degradation, and lets make Sydney Beautiful again!

With hope and thanks,

J. Bellamy
