For decades I (now aged 69) have written submissions, letters, pleas and attended protests, as a result of the warnings of TRUSTED scientists and biologists world-wide. In the 1970s my husband and I had two children. Our son is now 43 and lives in VIC. He has two daughters one aged 8 and the other 4. He has seen us (his parents) struggle to initiate action on the increasingly desperate state of our world climate and biodiversity. Our daughter (40) chose NOT to have children and has lived her life according to her perception of the cynicism and serve-serving of both politicians in both TAS and Federally fed by their “mates” in cynicism and serve-serving businesses – investment banks, industrial forestry, coal and oil “mining” and burning, industrial scale aquatic distruction. We KNOW we are right, yet year has followed year, and now ALSO threatens our two grandchildren. They will soon be old enough to STRIKE but in the meantime my husband and I and our adult children will continue to VOTE the LIBERAL COALITION out of office. We have NEARLY succeeded. We need a LABORCOALITION” to ensure there is a future for all of today’s 4 and 8 year olds. That is now the ONLY chance our grandchildren have so YOU WILL BE DEFEATED.

Who are we?

We are Australia’s national environment organisation. We speak out, show up and act for a world where forests, rivers, people and wildlife thrive. We are proudly independent and funded by donations from our community.

Our challenge

Right now, a pollution and extinction crisis threatens our living world. Climate damage and habitat destruction are two of the biggest challenges we face in Australia. But people made this crisis and together we can solve it.

How we work

We push for bold solutions, because the problems we face are big and urgent. We use evidence-based advocacy, courage, creativity and common sense to make this country a better place. We change the story and build people power to fix the systems.
