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.
Yet the Morrison Government is trying to make disastrous changes to our environment laws that will make them even weaker. These laws need fixing – not butchering.
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 calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Environment Minister Sussan Ley to:
Create a new generation of national laws to protect nature and funding to restore ecosystems to bring our wildlife back from the brink.
