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.

Protect habitat, protect native species with effective legislation, and then enforce that legislation – or you’ll look as bad as the vandals setting fire to the Amazon.

At what point will all of the government bodies finally realise we can’t keep doing this and expect no consequences or don’t you care? Do you care about the world you are leaving your children or the short term gains fattening your pockets. I just don’t get how and why our politicians are letting this destruction continue. We are a developed country that has a far worse track record than poorer countries for wiping out native flora and fauna. And you wonder why no-one trusts politiicans!

This government’s cavalier approach to the environment amounts to crimes on a similar scale to the great travesties of the 20th century. It is to be hoped that one day they are made accountable in a very serious manner.
