    The State Opposition has accused the Queensland Government of using a review into the decline of native wildlife to push it's tree clearing reform agenda. The Queensland Government has announced a review into the potential impact of tree clearing on 21 threatened species. It comes after Queensland's Species Technical Committee recommended 21 of 29 species of flora and fauna it reviewed be re-listed to a more threatened protection status.
