Revoke the 2019 Reef Amendment Act and Check the Science
The Great Barrier Reef is healthy and thriving, but our Aussie farmers are drowning in red tape. We need to turn back the Reef Regulations imposed under the Queensland Government’s Environmental Protection (Great Barrier Reef Protection Measures) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019.
Our farmers are committed stewards of the land and sea, and our farmers feed all Australians. Protect them against over-regulation that is pushing them to the wall.
The science used to impose the 2019 Reef Regulations Amendment Bill is unchecked, as is all Marine Science in Australia. Marine Geophysicist and Great Barrier Reef expert Dr Peter Ridd is standing alongside farmer groups who are taking the battle over the stealthy rise of Reef Regulations, and the continued use of unchecked science when making legislation, direct to the Queensland and Federal Governments.
This petition is calling for the Environmental Protection (Great Barrier Reef Protection Measures) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019 to be revoked. It also demands the establishment of an Office of Science Quality Assurance to check the science being used to make political decisions.
The petition is open to everyone.You are urged to sign it now, and share it across our communities.
