Rangers endangered! 

What do swift parrots, koalas and NPWS rangers have in common? They may all be extinct in NSW if the Baird government has anything to do with it.

Over the weekend a worrying piece of news was buried amongst the furore of two Grand Finals and a heatwave that sent millions to the beach: NSW environment agencies are to be hit with $20 million worth of cuts this year— on top of $60 million already slashed from environment since the change of government three years ago[1].

Three levels of government guilty of failing to protect koalas

It’s up to us now: with three levels of government failing to protect koalas, the community has to take a stand to ensure we don’t lose our national icon says the National Parks Association of NSW (NPA).

It’s a sad truth that the NSW and federal governments don’t seem to care about koala conservation. They are leaving the heavy lifting to cash-strapped community groups and non-governmental organisations.
