Hi All,

The NSW Government's draft NSW Biodiversity Conservation Bill 2016 will be
read in the NSW Parliament soon.  If passed, it will likely result in
significantly more native vegetation being cleared, including thinning or
complete removal of areas of remnant woodland on farms, and facilitate major
developments such as mines, coal seam gas activities and large-scale urban
development.  Of course, this will impact significantly on biodiversity,
including the birds and their habitats.  Therefore, I encourage you to sign
online petitions from environment groups that are currently circulating,
read through the legislation and supporting documents, and even put in your
own submission (deadline: 28 June 2016).

Kind regards,


Dr Stephen Ambrose
