What if someone threatened to destroy your home? Can you picture it, gone forever? For Greater Gliders, this is their stark reality. 

These small gliding marsupials make their homes in leaf-lined hollows and spend their nights foraging high up in the forest canopies. But over decades, armies of bulldozers have charged through our forests, knocking down their homes. Loggers have ripped out trees and left mountain tops bare and bald. 

This cannot go on. We are facing a pollution and extinction crisis and we have no Planet B. 

Sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to:

Create a new generation of national laws to safeguard our air, water and wildlife. 

This new framework of laws must: 

  • Make the federal government responsible for protecting the air we breathe, our wildlife, our climate and the places we love
  • Establish an independent commission to set environmental standards
  • Create an independent national Environmental Protection Authority to make sure governments and businesses do the right thing by nature
  • Guarantee communities the right to have a say in environmental decisions

As part of a huge collaboration of groups – the Places You Love Alliance – we convened an independent panel of legal experts to map out a blueprint for a new generation of national environmental laws. We have the solutions – all we need now is the political will. 

By signing the petition, you're joining a growing community of people standing up for our living world.
