Protect the Greater Bilby – Add your voice

The elusive Greater Bilby is one of Australia’s most threatened animals. It’s also one of our most-loved, despite the fact many of us have never seen one.

But land clearing for profit threatens their survival. To survive, greater bilbies need safe habitat to call home.

By speaking up and signing the open letter to get big money out of politics, you will be sending a strong message to our elected representatives that it’s time we create a healthy, thriving democracy that’s good for people and planet.

Every signature gets us closer to a democracy that:

  • Caps political donations by corporations to curb unfair influence.
  • Reports donations as they happen so we are all informed.
  • Includes an independent body to investigate and stamp out corruption.

When big money and politics mix, nature loses out.

Sign the open letter: call on our elected representatives to get big money out of our political system, and put people and planet back in.

Open letter

To our elected representatives,

We call on you to work together to get big money out of our political system and put people back in.

This means:

  • Banning large donations to political parties and candidates.
  • Increasing the transparency of political donations, including real time reporting of donations. 
  • Limiting expenditure at election times so corporations can’t use their oversized  wallets to drown out our voices.
  • Creating an independent watchdog to investigate and stamp out corruption.
  • Stronger lobbying regulation and greater transparency so we know who’s meeting with our elected representatives and why.

It is unbelievable that Australia is allowing the extinction of our beloved native animals (found nowhere else in the world) and the permanent ruin of our environment for short term political and monetary gain. Please take the long term view for a peaceful, harmonious farming future and a bountiful natural environment. Stop big dollars from ruining our children’s future

A short word to the government: Get with the program guys! Just about every country on earth is taking protection of the environment seriously, even the autocrats! But Australian state and federal governments (not to mention big business) still think they can dupe the public by “talking green”.

How can we trust politicians to do the right thing if big donations can cause a change in decision like this. Politicians are supposed to represent all Australians not just those who can pay big money now. Protecting our environment is the only real way to look after ALL Australians.
