Today the Albanese Government has started consulting environment, industry and First Nations stakeholders on key details of a new generation of laws to protect the wildlife and nature we love.
It’s a big milestone in our campaign to stop nature destruction, and a crucial moment for us to remind Prime Minister Anthony Albanese that communities across Australia want his government to urgently deliver strong new laws that end extinction.
Nature needs us, now. So let’s speak up now, all at once, to send a powerful message for nature across Facebook, X/Twitter, Instagram, and via email.
Here’s all the instructions you need to send a positive message about why you want nature protected on the platform/s of your choice. Have fun and remember to make your message respectful as this helps it to get noticed by decision makers!
Go to this post on Anthony Albanese’s Facebook page and write a comment about why you want nature protected urgently.
You can weave in any of the talking points below, but make sure you personalise your message:
The Prime Minister gets lots of comments on all sorts of topics. If you 'like' and reply to other comments about strong nature laws, it will help elevate them in the comment feed so more people will see them.
Send your message directly to the Prime Minister and Environment Minister on X! We’ve helped you get started with this sample post, but your message will be more powerful if you personalise it.
Or follow these instructions:
‘Like’ and ‘retweet’ other people’s posts so they spread far and wide!
We’ve created a handy augmented reality (AR) filter that features some of Australia’s iconic wildlife to help engage your networks and politicians on Instagram!
New laws are make-or-break for so much of the Australian nature that’s at risk of being lost forever. Read our blog about what nature laws need to deliver.
If you’re not on social media, write a quick email to the Prime Minister. Reaching decision makers through many different channels reinforces our message and multiplies our impact.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll have a firmer view of the government’s vision for nature protection in Australia. Passing new laws is complex and takes time, and nature will need you to lend it your voice again soon.
Thank you for speaking up!
