Far North Queensland's Labor MPs have called on Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke to attend an urgent round table discussion in Cairns to discuss the ongoing issues associated with dugong protection in Queensland. I’m also seeking improved research to establish baseline data for the dugong population, to ensure a sustainable future. We need to focus on where there is already consensus as a starting point - by and large we are seeking the same outcome. Bringing all the key stakeholders together is the best and most practical way forward.

Yellow Crazy Ants are an introduced exotic species. They are widely regarded as environmental pests and are included as one of the world's 100 worst invasive species. The name 'crazy ant' is derived from their erratic walking style and frantic movements, especially when disturbed. The pest ant has spread extensively since it was first discovered in Cairns in 2001.
