A notice has appeared on the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) website http://www.environment.gov.au/epbc/index.html inviting additional public comments (for five days) relating to the likely effects of the Kings Forest residential development on koalas, taking into consideration their recently posted status as vulnerable in NSW http://www.environment.gov.au/cgi-bin/sprat/public/publicspecies.pl?taxon_id=85104.
Anyone who is on record with the Australian government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities as having expressed interest in the Kings Forest residential development (Referral 2012/6328) http://www.environment.gov.au/cgi-bin/epbc/epbc_ap.pl?name=public_notifications&limit=90&text_search=2012%2F6328 will get an email today giving the exact link for response.
This information can be confirmed/extended by ringing 1800 803 772, asking to be put through to the NSW office and talking with Zarni or Mahini.
Some of you on the list above probably already know about this, and/or may even have helped to make it happen, but please everyone forward this email to anyone you think may be interested.
Make a submission – help make the Kings Forest residential development a controlled action under the EPBC Act!
