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 legislation (EPBC Act) developed by the Howard Government is in dismal disrepair, and being ‘driven into the ground’ by the Morrison Government.

Enough ! We must protect our environment and habitat for all our rapidly dwindling native species. Too many problematic decisions have been made in the past, and yet here is another example if stupidity!

This is totally unacceptable. We must not allow the greater glider to go extinct. Why are you allowing all this clearing? It is destroying habitat, and if cattle are run they will have no shade. This land is unsuitable for cropping. Leave it as it should be. Please be sensible for once.

We need to consider all earth’s creatures before destroying more habitat for us. Earth belongs to us all……
