#MissingWildlife

Our iconic animals are missing in the wild. Because our leaders are missing in action.

Tell them to step up and make laws that actually protect nature and wildlife.

Exposing extinction

Australia holds the world record for the most mammal extinctions and is ranked 4th for animal extinctions globally.

Yet 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.

These laws need fixing — not butchering. We need laws that actually protect the wildlife we love. Before they’re gone.

Let's make Australia’s extinction crisis visible — and call on the federal government to create laws that actually protect wildlife.
