There’s a threatened species crisis - yet no money in the Budget for native forests and habitat restoration.
Australian Greens Spokesperson for Forests, Janet Rice, has lashed out at the Labor Government for failing to budget to protect native forests and their threatened animals, birds and plants.
$224 million has been allocated as part of the Labor Government’s Threatened Species Action Plan but it fails to protect native forests.
Senator Rice said:
“According to a parliamentary budget office costing, it will take $24.4 billion over the next decade to restore wildlife habitat and protect threatened species. $224 million is an insult.
