Nature underpins our lives, our health, and our economy. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. The places we escape to.

But sadly, nature is in crisis. More than a million animal and plant species globally - from tigers to Tasmanian devils - are being driven to extinction. Ancient forests like the Amazon and Daintree are collapsing. And the Great Barrier Reef is in danger.

This year countries are gathering to create a global agreement to protect and restore nature. It will be the most important decision for nature in a decade.

Australia must work with other nations to deliver ambitious global goals for nature to halt and reverse biodiversity destruction and set us on a path to a nature-positive world.

When it comes to nature, few countries have as much at stake as Australia. Our ancient landscapes and amazing array of wildlife are found nowhere else on earth.

But Australia is also a global deforestation hotspot alongside places like the Amazon and Congo.

Sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Environment Minister Sussan Ley to:

Support ambitious global goals for nature to halt and reverse biodiversity destruction and achieve a Nature Positive world by 2030 at the 15th conference to the parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15).

That means supporting clear and measurable goals and targets to:

  • End extinction and recover threatened species,
  • Restore the ecosystems we’ve already degraded,
  • Embed the value of nature in all government and business decision-making,
  • Recognise Indigenous rights and stewardship,
  • Protect at least 30% of the planet’s land and oceans,
  • and, to do our fair share of what’s needed, commit to protecting at least 30% of our own diverse lands by 2030 as other nations have.

Want to understand more about how global goals for nature will help Australia's own endangered plants and animals? Read this blog from Nathaniel Pelle, ACF's Business and Biodiversity Campaign Lead, then sign the petition and invite friends and family to add their names too!

Our fauna and flora must have better and stronger protection laws. The EPBC Act is outdated and far too weak.

Scott and Susan – How we protect the most vulnerable in our world is a reflection on who we are. We need to protect what we have been gifted and serve all through protecting our environment.

Act immediately and urgently to save Australia’s native predatory marsupials and birds which, for a very long time, have imposed ecological stability throughout Australia. With their demise ecosystems are easily over-run by herbivores and invasive species (e.g. rabbits, rodents, cats and foxes) to leading to destabilization of ecosystems (e.g. limited recruitment of plants and therefore decreasing ecosystem biomass, which results easily in sheet erosion be unconstrained rainfall runoff).
