Right now, nearly 2,000 Australian animals, plants and ecosystems are at risk of extinction. And it's getting worse.

Ruthless nature-wrecking corporations and developers are bulldozing the forests and grasslands they call home. And our governments are doing little to stop them.

In North Queensland, nationally protected greater glider possums face being wiped out from their forest homes to make way for cattle farming.

And it's not a one-off. In 20 years, habitat destruction has driven glider numbers to drop by 80%!

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.

It’s hard to believe with all the knowledge about climate change and extinction these things are still happening. Oxygen,food,water and sunlight are vital for our existence….money at the end of the day is something made up by humans WHICH IS NOT VITAL!!!

We need new laws to protect nature not exploit it.

Stop destroying the forest and the habitat of the glider which is supposed to be protected. The world needs less meat and more wilderness with wildlife.

We only get one shot at protecting endangered habitat so please listen to the science and expert advice and protect the glider habitat

In addition to native forests providing habitat to for native fauna (including greater glider possums) and flora, it also absorbs more carbon, which is what is needed, especially since the fires in Brazil,.
There is ample open spaces for cattle. Yes, a lot of it is now affected by drought, further south. Australia needs to be looking at enhancing our climate, i.e. reducing carbon emissions, for the health of our nation (and the rest of the world). The cost to the budget of increased health problems (physical and mental) needs to be factored in too.
Please make responsible decisions for the long term health of our planet and halt the destruction of our native fauna and flora too.

It’s time to step up, Minister Ley, and start acting in the interests of the environment.
