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.

This destruction needs to be investigated, we need to protect our environment for future generations, including your children Scott Morrison

Why was this precious land and the animals on it killed? At the very least, all animals should be captured and removed. What is wrong with the so called ;environment minister’????

Sussan, Please have the courage to stand up and create a new generation of national laws to protect Australia’s Bush Heritage, rather than see our wildlife go extinct. It is your responsibility as the Environment Minister to protect it, not approve the destruction of it.

I just cat believe what this government is doing to our country, our environment and our world! This CANNOT continue. Please stop now before it’s too late. Not only are you destroying the habitat of gliders but everything else that lives there. Ultimately you will kill our human population too. STOP IT NOW

I am sick of hearing about failures of the federal govt to protect our environment. It is now Number One priority. Please STOP this, and the deception of Australians. Enforce proper protection with landowners.
