letters to the government of Australia

Postby JuanMasello » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:19 am

These are the letters we sent to the government of Australia regarding the urgent need of protection of essential habitat for the golden-shouldered parrot, Psephotus chrysopterygius.

A first answer to our letter to Hon Melissa Price, Minister for the Environment, Camberra, Australia, arrived per regular mail yesterday.

Please, find a scan in the following attachment



It seems to me that this answer condemns to destruction most of the habitat of the Golden-shouldered Parrot. May be our Australian colleagues could provide us with more details. Are there any options?

I hope we will receive, as promised, a reply from the Department of Environment and Energy, Camberra, Australia, soon.

I'll keep you updated.

All the best,

This is distressing and all members should be very concerned.

How can we help?

I do not know... I hope our Australian colleagues can advise us. Or some of the conservation NGOs.

It is not the only parrot species in such dramatic conservation situation...

And, not the first letter we sent to Australian authorities, which do not seem to realise how dramatic the situation is.

Ideas are welcome. Cheers, JUAN
