We live in one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet – over 80% of Australia's animals & plants are found nowhere else on Earth!
But we’re also one of the worst countries in the world for extinction. Australia holds the world record for the most mammal extinctions and nearly 2000 plants, animals and ecosystems are currently under threat.
It should be illegal to send plants and animals extinct. But our system for protecting threatened species in this country is fundamentally broken. We don't have the laws to protect the critical habitat our wildlife need to survive and our government isn’t doing anywhere near enough to support their recovery.
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.
Because we live on an incredible continent, and it’s our responsibility to look after it.
