Changing the Harvesting of Indigenous Flora
the reliance on plants for most of our products is growing, but the only thing we question is if there will be enough, not where is it coming from? Most of the products in Australia rely on Australian plants on indigenous land. For years we have been harvesting plants and damaging the flora and fauna of indigenous land, well now the Queensland government is introducing a reformed Biodiscovery Law. The reformed law will develop better legal protection for Indigenous knowledge, and Queensland hopes that other states will follow this example.
PhD candidate from the University of Queensland School of Law Jocelyn Bosse, joined us earlier to unpack the reformed biodiversity law.
