Our national environment laws are supposed to protect the places and wildlife we love.

But the once-in-a-decade review of those laws has found that nature in Australia is in big trouble. Australia has one of the worst extinction records on Earth, and even our most iconic wildlife like the koala and platypus are at risk in some states.

The independent reviewer, Professor Graeme Samuel, recommends a complete overhaul of our national environment laws to protect our country’s unique places, plants, animals and ecosystems for future generations.

Australia has one of the worst extinction records on Earth. It's time for laws that actually protect nature, and an independent regulator to enforce them.

The ACF Community Adelaide group is championing the local threatened southern brown bandicoot and the australasian bittern. We are asking our local MP Steve Georganas (federal member for Adelaide) and Senator Karen Grogan(SA) to champion these chosen species too! We hope that when the time comes to pass strong federal nature laws our MPs and Senators will reflect on how laws will protect these local threatened species.

Sign the petition to demand that our national environment laws actually protect nature.

Create a new generation of national laws to protect nature and funding to restore ecosystems to bring our wildlife back from the brink.
