Flying Fox colonies

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Judy Frazer
28 Mary Street

Total Signatures - 621

Sponsoring Member: Lachlan Millar MP

Posting Date: 23/08/2017

Tabled Date: 23/08/2017

Responded By: Hon Dr Steven Miles MP on 22/09/2017

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the risk to human health, property damage and environmental hazards created by the ongoing presence of flying fox colonies in urban areas and the barriers created by the Queensland Government in the management and removal of these colonies.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to direct the Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection to take full responsibility for the timely dispersal of Flying Fox colonies out of urban areas at any time of the year and regardless of breeding cycles.
