Widespread tree clearing and habitat loss has resulted in a serious decline in koala numbers in south-east Queensland.
Now that there have been changes to Queensland's tree-clearing laws, what will be the impacts to koala habitat in the Mackay region?
Adam Gilmour, the senior natural resource officer from DNRME will join us at our next meeting, where he will explain how the new laws work and how they will impact conservation efforts.
Also joining us will be Mark Thomas from the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) unit, who will give a presentation on the importance and benefits of Queensland Globe - an online tool that can be used to discover a trove of information and data!
