Yesterday I welcomed the Shadow Environment Minister, Sam O'Connor MP, into the Glass House electorate and surrounds🌳

We visited the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital where we discussed the main causes of hospitalisation for Green Sea Turtles, Koalas and more.

After that we headed off to Crohamhurst to see the Koala sanctuary I helped secure back when I was Environment Minister, before heading back to Beerwah to check out the Coochin Creek Co-op and one of their supporting farms.

Environmentally friendly disposal methods of fertiliser bags is a big issue for a lot of farmers and the Co-op have some great ideas on how to fix this, they just need government and council support to do so.

Finally we ended up at Chilli Bins to chat to Neal and Simon about waste levies♻️.

Thanks for visiting, Sam!
