We have a once in a generation opportunity to fix our failing national environment laws.
Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek has just announced plans for a new national framework of environment laws.
There are some important commitments in her plans, but we need to get this right if we’re going to meet the challenge of the environmental crises we’re facing. As it stands, there are some critical gaps that must be addressed.
Minister Plibersek needs to know there are thousands of us calling on her to get these laws right – for all of the wonders of our natural world, for the animals and plants that shape our shared identity, for the world we can’t live without.
