Australia’s plants and animals are under threat. Our combined voices can protect them.

We have one of the worst records on extinction in the world. 56 more Australian species have just been added to the international red list of threatened species –bringing the total to 1,830 Australian species in danger!

The nature crisis is global. Habitat destruction is threatening Tasmanian Devils and Sumatran tigers alike with extinction. The Great Barrier Reef is collapsing, so is the Amazon.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek can make Australia a global leader for nature – but they have to show up.

This means attending the 15th conference to the parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) in Montreal in December, and advocating for strong global nature goals that unite and hold governments and business accountable worldwide to protect and restore the natural world that sustains us.

Sign the petition calling on the federal government to:

Lead on ambitious global goals for nature to halt and reverse biodiversity destruction and achieve a Nature Positive world by 2030 at COP15.

That means championing clear and measurable goals and targets, backed by domestic commitments 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.

Want to understand more about how global goals for nature will help Australia's own endangered plants and animals? Read our 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!

I can’t believe we are the worst in the world for mammal extinctions! Makes me so angry.

The world is out of balance. Australia has the privilege of being one of the most unique places in the world and should be a leader in conservation.

In order to save our precious wildlife we need to save their habitat firstly and foremost. The problem being the inhabital areas for endangered species are also where humans also like to habitate…and the humans will always take over🤔😲😢

I want australia to keep it’s wildlife. I don’t want our wildlife to constantly be in a threatened state. Why does beauty and nature and natural space have to be sacrificed to nothing more than business.?

Please protect your endangered species like the Eastern Curlew. They are a national treasure and need protection, or they risk extinction.

I really the local, state and federal governments can be seriously active in establishing a program to help save the both West Australian Black Cockatoo species.

I am saddened that we ignore diminishing species such as the bogong moth. The world is the looser we we degrade our natural habitats.

Australia does not have a good record for wildlife and habitat protection. The mighty $$ is heard before the call for protections of habitat loss.

If it’s not about making $ then it doesn’t really matter huh?
And what takes a person’s mind of the intensity of the world? Our natural environment, in one way or another. I fear for those who’ll only read about the habitat in Australia USED to be like.
Shame. Shame. Shame. Lisa, Frankston.
