That the Senate—
(a) notes that:
(i) Australians are outraged that our national parks are under threat from logging, grazing, shooting and tourism developments, and
(ii) it is too late to secure by regulation national protection for national parks in this parliamentary term; and
(b) calls on the Government to act on its promise to protect our national parks by amending the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 before this Parliament rises.
