Maybe not exactly garden-related but many of us will be keen conservationists.
Received a note from the Bribie Island Environmental Protection Association http://www.biepa.org via the CREEC mailing list. CREEC is Caboolture Regional Environmental Education Centre at Burpengary http://www.creec.org.au/.
The Redlands Council is concerned about the rate of tree-clearing in their area and the consequent threat to Koalas. The website http://www.redland.qld.gov.au/NewsEvents/PublicNotices/Pages/Koalapetition.aspx
has a link to a State Parliament e-petition and a printable petition.
Please check the petition and if it accords with your views, please sign it. Oh, and remember to note down the number as part of the petition-signing process.
