What Tasmania tells the world about threatened species
On National Threatened Species Day, Senator Whish-Wilson and Rosalie Woodruff MP highlight proposed EPBC law changes and the implications they have for Tasmania in the transfer of powers from the Commonwealth to the state.
Quotes attributable to Senator Whish-Wilson:
"This all started here in Tasmania in the fight to save the Franklin river.
"It was a watershed moment that led to the realisation that states could not go unchecked and strong environmental laws would be needed to prevent this from ever happening again.
