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.

These politicians are so out of touch with the planet and the irreversible damage they’re doing. They’re behaviors are truly un-Australian. I imagine Steve Irwin would be turning in his grave.

Not only does the above destroy wildlife habitats but just as important, also ends up creating desertification of soil and drought! TREES help create RAIN – without them there almost NO LIFE! Why are they ignoring this threat.😡

It is vital that developments carry out appropriate surveys. Otherwise legislation will fail its purpose and become token.

It’s way past time that development should be illegal when it has even slight negative impact on endangered species. We have lost too much already… please put a stop to this sickening destruction!

Save our native wildlife istead of wasting money on overseas causes. The money is needed here.

Government, developers and agriculture should get a clue and stop this disgusting activity. Specific to developers, why are they unchecked? As for agriculture, do you or does anyone on the land remember learning about precipitation in primary school? Duh, we need precipitation to occur for rain to occur, wake up Australia.
