Stock Routes Coalition

Scientists and conservationists say vital wildlife corridors will be lost for ever if state governments sell off a network of stock routes in Queensland and New South Wales. In 2008, 450 ecologists and wildlife scientists called on the Premiers of the two states to protect the network, established in the mid-19th Century to help transport livestock between properties and to market.

Birds Queensland became part of the Stock Routes Coalition that pursued the two state governments to ensure the protection of the Travelling Stock Routes in Queensland and New South Wales.
