The Greens have today introduced new laws to stop land clearing of critical habitat and save our koalas.
The legislative move would prevent the Federal Environment Minister from approving new mines or developments in koala habitat.
Greens Environment Spokesperson Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said:
“Koalas are a national treasure and yet the Environment Minister is not just failing to save them but she continuously signs their death warrant.
“Unless habitat clearing is stopped, koalas will soon be extinct.
