Our community is amazing!
Right across the country, people have lodged thousands and thousands of missing creature alerts with their local Members of Parliament.
Like Marie from Sydney, who wrote, "I am extremely concerned about habitat destruction in Australia. Please push your party leader for stronger national environment laws to protect the places and wildlife we love."
And Sam, who said, "I am 17 years of age, and I plan to travel and see the world when I graduate high school. I fear that we are losing our environment at such a rapid rate that I will not be able to experience our native flora and fauna when I travel around Australia. Please, on behalf of the young people, hear us now before it is too late."
And Donna: "Once these animals are gone – they’re lost forever. Now is the time to act before it’s too late."
Rosy-cheeked Palm Cockatoos, fluffy numbats and shy legless lizards can't travel to Parliament House to ask for protection.
Thanks so much for speaking out for them.
Because so many people in our community have spoken out, the Australian Senate has launched an inquiry into Australia's unfolding extinction crisis.
You've raised the alert with your local MP. Now will you make a submission to the Senate extinction inquiry?
