NSW Government Biodiversity Legislation

The National Trust has joined Stand Up for Nature, an alliance of conservation groups dedicated to improving protection for nature in NSW.

The Trust will be lobbying against proposed legislation which, in the Trust’s view, would dramatically increase land clearing in NSW with major adverse impacts on biodiversity conservation and efforts to deal with climate change.

This is an unusual step for the Trust, but, in the past we have joined with other like-minded groups to oppose sand mining along the NSW coast (1964), to lobby for the creation of Myall Lakes National Park (1968), to oppose rainforest logging (1980s) and more recently to protect Sydney Harbour defence sites and NSW public lands.
