Our laws need to work for nature.

Australia is in the grip of an extinction crisis. We desperately need to change the way we manage our natural systems to better protect our beloved birds, animals and plants. We know our current nature laws are not working.

But from today, Members of Parliament could be asked to vote on amendments that would weaken our national nature laws - the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act .While there is opposition, the Government only needs a few more votes to pass its proposal to remake the laws that are supposed to protect the birds and places we all love.  

We need to remind our elected representatives how important nature is to Australians and we expect our laws to genuinely protect and restore nature.

We have such a huge opportunity now to strengthen these laws that will give our environment, birds and animals the best chance – one they need more than ever after the 2019/20 summer bush fires.  

You can make a difference now by writing to or calling your Coalition MP or Senator and telling them why nature is more important than ever to you, and all Australians.
