Why this petition matters

Started by
Narelle Wasley

We, the undersigned, call for the preservation of three significant gumtrees at Claremont Showgrounds, currently under threat of removal for the upcoming Cirque du Soleil show. These gumtrees serve as critical nesting and roosting sites for endangered Carnaby's and Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos.

The potential destruction of these trees poses a serious threat to the well-being and survival of these iconic Australian birds. As concerned citizens, we believe in finding alternative solutions that allow the show to proceed without compromising the integrity of the local ecosystem.

We urge Cirque du Soleil to collaborate with local communities, environmental organizations, and relevant authorities to explore alternative locations within Claremont Showgrounds or implement measures to protect the trees during the event.

Preserving our natural environment and protecting endangered species should be a shared responsibility. By signing this petition, we call on Cirque du Soleil to reconsider the decision to remove these gumtrees and engage in a constructive dialogue with local stakeholders to find a mutually beneficial solution.

Your support is crucial in demonstrating a commitment to responsible and environmentally conscious practices. Let's ensure the survival of these endangered birds and safeguard the biodiversity that makes our community unique.
