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!

Its time to stop destroying our wildlife.

I want ambitious goals for nature in Australia because we can’t delay any further and the status of many species is extremely concerning. That species have been in decline for decades and we don’t have significant measures in place is shameful. When scientists are appealing for better protection eg. the greater glider, govt should be listening. Please act with haste to protect our wildlife.

We need to do more because the current goal are not being met. More procrastination will only lead to worsening situations where it may be too late to reverse the damage modern society has made to the country and the planet as a whole. Do something now!!!

After watching Pete Walsh’s efforts to help the platypus in PBS’s Nature episode “The Platypus Garden” I am 100% on board with the efforts to help these endangered friends. We all deserve to be here- not just some of us.

We must end the continual destruction of habitat and concentrate on restoring ecosystems for our endangered species. The Black Cockatoo are going to be extinct in a matter of a few years if this problem isn’t addressed now.
Lynn 2023-11-02 12:15:51 +1100
I want ambitious goals for nature because our native wildlife is so crucial to our ecosystem and without the existence of certain species more species will fall into a decline and become endangered and nothing will be left eventually for us to enjoy and observe.
Kiah 2023-11-02 07:48:03 +1100
We need to protect and conserve as much of what nature is left as a matter of urgency. We are losing iconic species – and unknown species before we get a chance to discover them.
