A nature conservation legacy

A quote which epitomises the situation facing many private landholders in Queensland:

“On one hand landholders are encouraged to improve conservation outcomes, on the other hand it’s all taken away. I wanted to leave a legacy, a nature conservation legacy, and it looks like my legacy will be an open-cut coal mine.”

Carl Rudd, co-owner of Bimblebox Nature Refuge speaking last month.
