  • Correcting Clive Palmer (again…) « Bimblebox Nature Refuge
    that if you tell a lie often enough people begin to believe it not a good look for a hopeful Prime Minister Here are some of the main ways his message is plain wrong A sign of mining culture in Queensland Bimblebox was NOT declared under the Bligh Government It was declared under the Queensland Government when Peter Beattie was Premier with generous support and recognition from the John Howard Federal Government with Robert Hill as Environment Minister The conservation values of Bimblebox are not in question Anna Bligh made a commitment prior to the 2012 election that she would protect nature refuges with high conservation values if she was re elected stating explicitly that would mean ruling out mining in areas like the Bimblebox nature refuge See her commitment in writing here Bimblebox is covered by the STRONGEST form of protection for private conservation areas in Queensland It is a fundamental flaw in State legislation that Nature Refuge Agreements signed between the landholders and the State Government do not prohibit mining that is regardless of the conservation values of the refuge Any plan to offset the destruction of Bimblebox Nature Refuge would result in a net loss of Queensland biodiversity These offset areas would be protected by Nature Refuge Agreements so would also not be safe from mining This issue is further discussed in several excellent articles on The Conversation from May 2013 May 2012 and September 2011 Bimblebox is not trashed out cattle country Bimblebox serves as an outstanding example of the coexistence of cattle production and biodiversity conservation Private productive lands are increasingly recognised for their important role in contributing to landscape scale conservation in Australia and form a major part of the National Reserve System Clive eventually stated his intentions plainly at the end of the

  • Federal Environment Minister paves way for destruction « Bimblebox Nature Refuge
    approval for a new coal terminal at Abbot Point It is the final green light required for the GVK Hancock Alpha coal project to go ahead The expansion of coal export facilities at Abbot Point will seriously impact the internationally significant Calley Valley wetlands habitat for numerous shorebirds including the threatened Australian Painted Snipe The port development will also affect sea life dependent on seagrass in the area such as dugongs and turtles Sign a petition to urge Minister Burke to reverse his approval Significantly the GVK Hancock project is the first in the Galilee Basin to receive all the necessary State and Federal approvals and as such it spells the opening up of the region to coal production The mines will result in the clearing of tens of thousands of hectares of remnant woodland long term effects on the region s groundwater and the unleashing of millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide every year into the Earth s atmosphere Please consider signing this petition and if you can make contact with Minister Burke directly to let him know your thoughts and feelings about this Phone 02 6277 7640 Twitter Tony Burke Email Facebook http www facebook com tony burke

  • Bimblebox welcomes an artist’s touch « Bimblebox Nature Refuge
    Nature Refuge to document Bimblebox creatively and to show Australians what we are at risk of losing The artists say As we have learned more about the proposed coal mine developments for the Galilee Basin we have begun to realise the greater threat to life on Earth from generated carbon emissions if the Galilee Basin is developed for thermal coal export Artist Jill Sampson one of the main organisers of the camp in an interview with Simon Green from Central Queensland News Our intention is to map the country and its inhabitants in our own unique ways Ms Sampson said These 8000 ha of native bushland sustain complex ecosystems The landscape and its habitats exist as they have for thousands of years This long history will end if Waratah Coal is allowed to clear and mine the reserve Bimblebox has played host to a number of scientific studies in the past decade Ms Sampson said art and science had long complemented each other Nature art and science are all meant to enhance our lives and this is what we re seeing at Bimblebox she said Through our art we will bear witness to this place its past and its future
