Don't allow Queensland's national parks to be opened up for resort development

Dear Minister Andrew Powell
We, passionate defenders of Australian wild places, ask that you do not allow Queensland national parks to be opened up for resort development and recreational activities. Protections to stop this kind of development have been in place for more than 50 years, ensuring Queensland is left with pristine natural reserves that future generations can enjoy.

Why is this important?

National Parks have been protected in the first place to protect areas of ecological importance from development, mining and other industry. More than ever, these wild places are crucial to maintain ecosystems and to ensure the protection of endangered species. If we allow development in these areas, we are interfering in the protection of these places and not guaranteeing future generations they will have these places to enjoy.
