These changes will not protect biodiversity nor conserve the health of rivers, soil and farmland. They do not address the urgency of dealing with climate change. I am opposed to: 1. Biodiversity offsets, 2. The Proposed Biodiversity Assessment Method, 3. Self-assessable codes, 4. The final decision making resting with the Primary Industries Minister. I urge you to pay attention to the thousands of New South Wales farmers, Aboriginal people, bushcarers, young people and ordinary citizens who care about protecting our unique native flora and fauna and not proceed with this proposed legislation. This matter is important, not just for New South Wales but for Australia and indeed the world. I want the Draft Biodiversity Conservation Act and Local Land Services Amendment Act, withdrawn and the implementation of laws which will genuinely improve outcomes for nature. Please count this as my personal submission to the proposed biodiversity conservation reform package. I give permission for this submission to be made public. Yours Sincerely, Anne Lanyon 2106
