    Paperbark March 2021

    Another busy month has passed, and we are filled with gratitude for the amazing people in our community doing great things. From those who got their gloves dirty on Clean Up Australia Day, to those who swam for our rivers and those who have come together to stand up for our trees. You are what inspires us!

    Some good news to come out of this month...

    Queensland Environment Minister Meaghan Scanlon announced the 56ha expansion of Girringun National Park, to protect more habitat of the endangered Mahogany Glider. This has been a long time coming, but we are so glad this time has come!

    Queensland has also announced a ban on many single-use plastics that will come into effect from September this year. Yay!

    Well done to everyone whose advocacy has contributed to these decisions!
