Please investigate alternative options for the Bruce Highway Upgrade Planning Study - Bruce Highway/Caloundra Road interchange.
Please do not realign Steve Irwin Way so that it goes through this forest.
This remnant forest must be preserved, by reinstating the South East Queensland Regional Forest Agreement put in place in 1998 to formally progress this forest to National Park, so the future of the animals and ancient trees within it are safe.
Why is this important?
The current proposal will clear at least 12ha and damage iconic remnant forest that contains koalas, ancient trees and already endangered animals.
This forest contains koala habitat, lowland subtropical rainforest (a nationally recognised critically endangered ecosystem),centuries old habitat trees and unique wetlands.
This forest is home to koalas, glossy black cockatoos, giant barred frogs, Richmond birdwing butterflies, Coxen fig parrots, Wallum froglets and other vulnerable declining frog and butterfly species.
If this project proceeds we will destroy forever an iconic Sunshine Coast natural treasure and put these ecosystems and species on a downward spiral to extinction.
