We can’t imagine an Australia without the Greater glider.
But gliders are missing in the wild. Because our leaders are missing in action.
That’s why we’re pushing for strong laws to better protect them and all of Australia’s incredible wildlife.
The Morrison Government is trying to make disastrous changes to our environment laws that will make them even weaker — pushing our animals closer to the brink of extinction.
Australia holds the world record for the most mammal extinctions in the world. The latest report from IUCN's Red List shows we are the 5th worst country for animal extinctions globally, and the 6th worst for the number of species listed as endangered and critically endangered.
We need laws that actually protect nature, including strong outcome-focused environmental standards and an independent regulator to oversee decision-making.
Add your voice to the petition to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Environment Minister Sussan Ley, asking them to support ambitious global goals for nature to halt and reverse biodiversity loss and achieve a Nature Positive world by 2030 — and invite your friends to raise their voice to nature too.
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.
