TAKE ACTION

Exporting endangered birds for profit must stop and be investigated

Allegations of rare and endangered birds being sold with the approval of the Federal Government, are shocking and must be independently investigated.

Allegations that hundreds of Australian birds have been exported into the hands of a criminal convicted of kidnapping and fraud are very serious.

Not one more shipment of animals should leave our shores until we know who is responsible a gross misjudgement that has allowed rare Australian birds into the hands of shady dealers.

The Environment Minister must outline what her office, and her predecessor, knew, and what she is doing to fix it.

Australians have every right to be angry that our endangered animals are being sent overseas and potentially sold for huge profits.

Australia continues to fall short of our obligations to protect our endangered species. The Government must be held to account.

 

I support an immediate halt to the export of native animals, and an independent inquiry into how hundreds of endangered and rare Australian birds have been exported for sale.

No more shipments of animals should leave our shores until we know who is responsible for this gross misjudgement that allowed rare Australian birds into the hands of shady dealers.

Australia continues to fall short of our obligations to protect our endangered species, we must act immediately.
