Protecting Biodiversity for the Future Bill 2014

Noting with deep concern, the report recently released that outlined that more than half of the Earth's animals have been lost, in a period of only 40 years. The impacts of this are systemic and while we cannot reverse this trend, we can do what we can to deal with the future.

Therefore this Bill outlines the following measures.

1. The Federal Department of Internal Affairs will coordinate with regional governments to provide $45 million - to support measures designed to directly improve the biodiversity of their region. Projects eligible to be funded under this Bill include:
1a. improving land-use management;
1b. re-introduction of native species;
1c. management of invader/pest species; and
1d. increasing the amount of land given to natural reserves.

2. The importation into Atlasia and/or sale of products derived from any endangered or vulnerable species in Atlasia, will be a Federally mandated crime.
