Lindeman Island has been declared a national park because of its exceptional scientific, ecological, heritage and recreational values. Any changes to the land tenure of Lindeman Island will lessen the protection of those exceptional values.
Public opinion, actively demonstrated over decades, indicates that citizens believe that areas declared as National Parks form a vital part of the state's heritage for all to enjoy.
We call upon Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, and Minister for Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef, Steven Miles, to ensure that:
- The whole of Lindeman Island National Park is be retained as national park
- Lindeman Island National Park is properly managed so as to protect its exceptional values
- No national parks are privatised.
