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!

It is critical to support biodiversity in Australia to keep the balance of our delicate ecosystem. For all our sakes!

The cost of inaction on environmental protection against global warming induced threats is now very much greater than that of belated action

It is great to hear the Minister is pursuing a policy that acknowledges the need to protect our biodiversity.
On a trip to the Western areas l saw many large dozers in farm machinery selling yards. These are used for dam building BUT also for landclearing. We must legislate to prevent the continued widespread destruction of natural grasslands and woodlands. To protect our flora and fauna the 30% figure that we need to preserve must be a benchmark that is not negotiable. The wrecking dozers should not allowed to destroy our native environment.
