Biodiversity Bill May Lead To Extinction

Wednesday 23rd March / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Conservation groups have welcomed a recent statement made by Premier Colin Barnett, in regards to amendments to new biodiversity legislation.

The Premier said the government would accept amendments to the Biodiversity Conservation Bill 2015, which has been tabled for debate in the State Parliament.

Conservation groups had previously raised concerns that the Biodiversity Conservation Bill 2015 fell short of contemporary practice for environmental law.

Wilderness Society Coordinator Peter Robertson, and Conservation Council Western Australia Director Piers Verstegen joined Tanya Bunter on The Mag to talk about the bill.
