Recap on Biodiversity

Jeff Angel from Total Environment Centre updated us at our March event on the NSW Biodiversity Review, including recent and upcoming campaigns.

The new Biodiversity Conservation Act will cover the whole state, including urban, coastal and rural areas. There is a concern that previously protected areas may be at risk under the new scheme. Additionally, a single biodiversity assessment methodology raises more questions regarding the practice of biodiversity offsetting and banking. 

With over 100 species of flora and fauna extinct in NSW alone from the past 200 years, new biodiversity laws are critical to conserving and preserving our natural environment.
