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.

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

The ACF Community Chisholm group is championing the local threatened southern brown bandicoot. We are asking our local federal MP Dr Carina Garland to champion this 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 this local threatened species.

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

If nothing changes, nothing changes. Imagine coupled with changes to legislation, we also had access to a millenia of expert knowledge that could sustain all living things on these lands🤷🏽‍♀️
