I will move that this House:

(1) Notes the New South Wales Threatened Species Scientific Committee has listed koalas in New South Wales as 'endangered', with numbers falling by 50 per cent over the past 20 years.

(2) Notes the status of the koala has been downgraded following the tenure of the self-proclaimed 'greatest Environment Minister in Australian history', now Treasurer, Matt Kean.

(3) Calls on the Government to act now on deforestation, land clearing, urbanisation and the destruction of wildlife corridors, and to save the koala from extinction in New South Wales.
