Queensland national park laws restored

The Brisbane Times reports (11.5.16) on the restoration of conservation guidelines to the management of Queensland’s national parks, reversing loosened regulations introduced by the previous Newman government.

‘The Queensland government has reversed controversial laws that opened up the state’s national parks to commercial operations.

‘Environment Minister Steven Miles says the amendments, passed early Wednesday morning, were in response to former Newman government changes.

‘”The new law requires that the management of national parks is to be guided by the primary goal of conserving nature,” Dr Miles said.’
