TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of the residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR), a 330,000 acre property in Queensland's Cape York Peninsula, is being threatened by strip mining. The SIWR is a wetland conservation property and tribute to Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, and is home to a set of important spring fed wetlands which provide a critical water source to threatened habitat, provide permanent flow of water to the Wenlock River, and is home to rare and vulnerable plants and wildlife. Cape Alumina Pty Ltd has lodged mining lease applications which include approximately 30,300 acres of the SIWR. The proposed area for mining on the SIWR contains the head waters of irreplaceable waterways and unique biodiversity which will not recover after mining operations are finished.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ask the Minister for Mines and Energy to ensure that no mining applications are granted on any part of the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR).

"We are going to lose to much, I have been helping the Irwin's on their campaign here in Melbourne and people do not know what is really happening in Cape York, So many animals will be without their homes Perched Springs will be destroyed and 20 million litres of water wasted everyday YES EVERYDAY. WE must stop it before it is to late.By the way I am 11 and know this is so wrong to be mining Steve Irwin's Wildlife Reserve
Unless WE Australian's stand Together 20 Million Litres of Water a Day to be Wasted. Sign the Petition too or the government that says we have a water shortage is going to Allow a mining company to waste 20 Million litres of pure water a day, That is criminal, And they will let our rainforests die and our endangered animals too Criminal once again"
