Ethanol mandate

Let’s increase the ethanol mandate to 10 per cent by 2025.
Ethanol presents a huge opportunity for the Queensland economy. Global demand for biofuels is increasing and local consumers are seeing the benefits of lower priced ethanol blended fuels.
KAP wants to increase the ethanol mandate from 4% to 10% by 2025.
This will provide great opportunities for producers and local manufacturers and processors, as well as increasing demand for agricultural products.

Crocodile management

KAP values human life above crocodiles.
KAP’s Safer Waterways Bill addresses the very real issue of Queensland’s exploding crocodile population.
These increased crocodile numbers affect public safety and threaten the agricultural, fisheries and tourism industries on which our regional economy depends.
KAP’s Safer Waterways Bill puts greater value on human life than the lives of crocodiles, and seeks to responsibly reduce the risk of crocodile attacks.
It aims to eliminate crocodiles from our waterways that pose a threat to human life, while protecting crocodiles from becoming endangered as a species.
The Safer Waterways Bill gives landowners power to manage crocodiles on their land.
It would also legalise crocodile egg harvesting in Queensland, which has been successfully implemented in the Northern Territory.
This, among other economic strategies, encourages the protection and breeding of crocodiles in areas they are able to live with no threat to human life.

Flying foxes

KAP wants immediate action on flying foxes.
KAP is pro culling flying foxes.
Flying foxes wreak havoc across Queensland. There are many communities where sections of parks have become completely unusable and closed because of flying foxes taking over.
KAP wants flying foxes gone from populated areas. We want Flying Fox Removal funding available and accessible for councils or contractors to deal with this significant problem.
