The last stronghold population of Spotted-Tailed Quolls in Southern Queensland is in danger.

Proposed development of a mega-resort in the Elbow Valley region of SE Queensland will push the Spotted-Tailed Quoll to extinction.

Development Company Joyful View Garden Real Estate proposes to develop over 2090 acres of land into a mix of permanent resident and resort-style accommodation for overseas v...
isitors and residents of up to 4000 people. The environmental impact of the mini-city will push the Spotted-Tailed Quoll to extinction in Queensland.

The animal is Australia’s largest marsupial carnivore and is listed by the Federal Government as endangered. It is also recognised internationally as vulnerable under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

In 2009 Southern Downs Regional Council opposed the proposed extension of the Unimin mine in the same region, citing the proposed expansion might have a potential impact on the habitat of the quoll – yet passed this proposed development in June 2011 with no consideration for the species!

The current extinction rate of mammals in Australia is unequalled anywhere in the world.

A petition will be sent to the Minister of Sustainability and Environment who will make the final decision on approval of the mega-resort later this year.

We need YOUR help to ensure the survival of this important native carnivore. Please sign the petition to add your voice to help one with none.

  3. This is heart breaking.... we have posted this on http://www.facebook.com/pages/Protect-Our-Australia/ and pinned it to the top of our timeline. We will try and get as many signatures on this for you as we can. I am current;y writing a letter to Animals Australia, to help raise awareness of this also. We have already lost so many of our native fauna and wildlife, I can not believe that in this day and age, we could still allow this to happen.
