Missing Wildlife

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 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. 

Unique Australian animals like numbats and mountain pygmy possums are all in decline, despite being on endangered lists for years.

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.

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.
