Green’s announce $2 billion per year towards conservation of native species


More than 2000 of Australia’s native species are at risk of becoming endangered or even extinct. The Tasmanian devil, sea lions in South Australia and the koalas in New South Wales are all under threat, and with this knowledge, the Green’s have decided to contribute 2 billion dollars a year to protect these Australian national icons. Greens leader Richard Di Natale says this money will come from a pollution tax, with big carbon emission producers set to pay a hefty price.
