Understorey: Biodiversity Conservation Bill

Wednesday 2nd December / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

The outdated 1950 Wildlife Conservation Act is about to be superseded by a Biodiversity Conservation Bill.

New powers will protect threatened species and now, at long last, their habitats.  There’s excitement in the environment movement about these significant changes, but some hesitation, too.  The Minister for Environment Albert Jacob speaks with Adrian Glamorgan, fielding questions such as: Why will the Department of Mines and Petroleum still be able approve companies clearing natural vegetation?

Will the Bill be applied to the endangered species in the path of Roe 8? What about Ministerial discretion?  and: Why is prison possible for peaceful environment protestors under other legislation, but only a hefty fine for hurting threatened species under the Biodiversity Bill?
