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!

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 The EPBC Act is outdated and far too weak.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).
