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.

Australia has a disgraceful record of mammal extinction. Let’s NOT add the beautiful bilby to that.

Political favours should NOT be bought. Our native fauna and flora are more important than commercial gain. Show that you care, politicians

We shouldn’t even have to ask for help or to raise awareness of our native species! It should be a national source of pride and deeply felt responsibility to protect and care for our native flora nad fauna.

Please reconsider the clearing of the area on Pardoo Station. I have been in the area, on a number of occasions & as a retired National Parks Ranger I strongly protest the clearing as it is an critical habitat for the Greater Bilby.
