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.

The Gliders are important to my children’s future. It is our responsibility as custodians of the future to protect them, not destroy their habitat.

Stop the extinction of our native animals for the sake of a few dollars!

I volunteer for a Yellow-Belly Glider project, facing the same extinction rates because of ridiculous pathetic protection laws. What is wrong with our Government? How embarrassing to be an Australian with your lack of consideration for our wonderful country.

Why would you bulldoze a beautify natural environment and endanger wildlife and tourism opportunities? Stop the destruction now.
