The irreversible damage that mining for coal seam gas can wreak on cropping land through subsidence was a highlight of a scientific paper recently published by four members of The Royal Society of Queensland.

The ABC gave an account of this threat in a news piece published on 8 October 2022 and Queensland Country Life on 11 October, based on a press release by lead author Assoc. Prof. Peter Dart.


 

The coal seam gas industry is causing irreversible damage to the landscapes of the Darling Downs, including its highly productive agricultural soils, according to Associate Professor Peter Dart, member of QSN member body The Royal Society of Queensland. Read the press release here. The press release draws upon a scholarly article recently published by the Society.


The Foundation’s Chair Rob Siganto is pleased to invite the public to The Moreton Bay Foundation’s 3rd annual Day on the Bay “long lunch” on Saturday 15th October.

“Held at the picturesque Little Ship Club on the waterfront at One Mile (Dunwich), North Stradbroke Island, Day on the Bay is an opportunity to take time out and appreciate our blue backyard. Classic Moreton Bay cruisers will arrive from Manly for an optional tour of the UQ research centre starting from 11am*. At 12pm, we will convene at the Little Ship Club for a delicious, sustainably sourced seafood lunch by chef Richard Webb and brief but thought-provoking presentations by locals whose lives are touched by the bay.

Throughout the day you will hear of vital research facilitated by The Moreton Bay Foundation during the last year, as well as the exciting activities planned for the year to come. Auctions and activities throughout the day will contribute to ensuring our remarkable Moreton Bay remains healthy and productive forever.

Wildlife Queensland is offering a free will-making service for those who would like to sponsor the vital work that the group tackles.

By partnering with Australia’s top-rated will-writing platform, Gathered Here, Wildlife Queensland is offering its supporters a free will-writing service that easily allows a donor to leave a gift in their will to help protect Australia’s at-risk species. 

“Having an up-to-date will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. But it’s also one of the easiest ways to leave a lasting legacy for wildlife. For a limited time (until 30 September 2021), Gathered Here is also offering supporters free and unlimited lifetime updates to their will* – a win for wildlife because ‘where there’s a will there’s a way.’

Write a free wildlife-friendly will in just 10 minutes.

Please contact Wildlife Queensland at bequests@wildlife.org.au or phone 3844 0129 for further information.

An extensive repository of knowledge about the stewardship of rural lands can be found on the rural policy webpage of The Royal Society of Queensland and the Rangelands Queensland website. See in particular Volume 127 of the Proceedings of The Royal Society of Queensland.

Also see the proceedings of a series of three Stewardship of Country webinars held in February and March 2021 by the Royal Societies of Australia. Some of the papers from that series have been published as Volume 133 (1) of the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Victoria.
