We're facing a pollution and extinction crisis. With habitat disappearing and the web of life fracturing, creatures like the greater glider, southern corroboree frog and palm cockatoo are vanishing before our eyes. 

But right now, the Turnbull Government is threatening to cut the jobs of 60 people who work to protect these incredible animals.

This is outrageous. A good government would be doing more to protect our threatened creatures from extinction, not slashing the critical work their survival depends on.

Sign the petition calling on Minister Josh Frydenberg to save critical jobs in the Department of Environment and Energy. 

By signing, you’re standing with the ACF and CPSU (Community and Public Sector Union) communities to speak out for thousands of threatened creatures and the people who work to protect them from extinction.

Protecting the jobs of the people who protect our wildlife creates jobs for the rest of us – tourism is completely reliant on native animals and healthy landscapes. Tourism already provides jobs for 10% of Australians and delivers $107 billion in revenue. Yet our government prioritises big business lobby groups, not because they deliver jobs, but because they deliver dirty donation money to the party bank account.

Shocking that Australian animals are being eaten by cane toads in remote areas of our beautiful outback. Please protect our precious wildlife.

Josh Frydenberg leading the world in species extinction . What an epitaph! Something to be really proud of as our children lament the wilful demise of our native species. You owe this country an explanation.

We need MORE people doing this great work, not less. If the govt can afford to grant themselves a pay rise, they can afford to keep these jobs.

They should be creating more jobs for the protection of these animals.
