I am extremely concerned that the proposed Biodiversity Conservation laws will greatly increase land clearing, reduce the legal protection for our biodiversity and will increase the loss of wildlife habitat and lead to increased extinctions of our native flora and fauna. I understand there are no clear requirements for monitoring and reporting which will mean no proper basis for evaluating the impacts of the new laws. I also don't accept that 'offsetting' is valid when it comes to protecting functional representatives of our diverse habitats and their flora and fauna.
