The Wildlife Land Trust is featured in the latest edition (Issue 23) of 'Rehabilitate and Release', the newsletter of the Queensland Wildlife Rehabilitation Council.  In the piece titled “Wildlife Land Trust: a vital piece in Australia’s wildlife rehabilitation puzzle” WLT Program Manager Evan Quartermain writes:

 

“In the face of efforts of dedicated (wildlife) carers is the unnerving trend that even more needs to be done.  With increasingly frequent natural disasters the flow of Australian wildlife requiring help continues to rise.  As people continue to multiply and spread further afield, it’s a dire situation should the status quo prevail...


We’re at the point where conservation efforts on privately owned land are absolutely vital to the survival of native wildlife species.  The more private land dedicated to habitat and wildlife protection, the more chance there is of ensuring the efforts of wildlife carers are not in vain...”

Wildlife Land Trust Director Responds to Tim Flannery's Quarterly Essay PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 10 April 2013 05:09

Wildlife Land Trust Director Michael Kennedy responds to Tim Flannery’s important essay, “After the Future – Australia’s New Extinction Crisis”, published in the Quarterly Essay, Issue 48, 2012, which laments the state of Australia’s threatened plants and animals and suggests future actions needed.  Flannery noted that “It is now clear that while establishing a national parks system was important, in a place like Australia it is not sufficient to preserve our biodiversity.

 

In his response, Michael Kennedy states in part “Flannery’s proposal for “zero tolerance” will obviously require a major shift in attitude by both industry and government.  They collectively treat biodiversity conservation generally, and species protection in particular, as mere adjuncts to natural resource management.  Industry still thinks that environmental impact procedures are something you have to suffer before automatically getting the green light – they cannot and do not conceive that their development proposals might be wholly unsustainable and prohibited.

 

Humane Society International and the Wildlife Land Trust will be lobbying the Government and Opposition hard to vastly improve the national endangered species program prior to the coming Federal Budget and Election.

HSI/WLT nomination leads to "Giant Kelp Marine Forests" protection PDF Print E-mail
Written by Evan   
Monday, 24 September 2012 05:05

After a Humane Society International (HSI) / Wildlife Land Trust (WLT) nomination to have Giant kelp forests of the east and south coasts of Tasmania listed as a Threatened Ecological Community in 2009, we were thrilled with the recent announcement by Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke that he was giving national protection to the Giant Kelp Marine Forests as an endangered ecological community under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, 1999 (EPBC Act).

 

The HSI/WLT nomination seeking national protection for this highly important and critical habitat type was made due to our view that it met the listing criteria for: having small geographic distribution coupled with demonstrable threat; loss or decline of functionally important species; and reduction in community integrity, and we congratulate Minister Burke for taking this urgent conservation measure and including occurences off the coasts of Victoria and South Australia.

 

Minister Burke noted that this was a conservation first as the first listed marine community under the EPBC Act and that "These are the jungles we cannot see and are among our great natural treasures," adding that "Any actions likely to have a significant impact on the giant kelp marine forests ecological community are now required to be referred for assessment under national environment law."

 

A fact sheet on the ecological community has been prepared by the Commonwealth Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Communities and Populations following this listing, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Welcome to issue 10 of Widlife Lands!  As per usual we begin with articles on several sanctuaries across the country written by their respective owners - our sincere thanks to everyone who assisted by putting together an article or sending in photographs, it's very much appreciated.

 

The species profile in this issue takes a look at bandicoots, while the Threatened Ecological Community profile focuses on the HSI/WLT nominated River Murray and associated wetlands, floodplains and groundwater systems, from the junction of the Darling River to the sea.

 

International WLT news in Issue 10 includes a feature on ARCAS, a large-scale WLT supported wildlife rehabilitation centre in Guatemala, and a sanctuary profile on US member Ogden Wildlife Sanctuary - this time wedged alongside the new member table and updated sanctuaries map, now displaying all 164 currently registered Australian WLT members.
