Stop Land Clearing on the Capricorn Coast

Stop Land Clearing on the Capricorn Coast

To have legislation to protect the remaining forests on the Capricorn Coast, from clear felling for land development. To restrict the amount and type of plants to be cleared in the development stage. Leaving as much existing forest as possible.

Why is this important?

For the preservation of flora and fauna. To reduce the planting of exotic species, which have high water needs, into new residential areas. To protect the reef and coastal areas from topsoil erosion from the total forest clearing in new developments
