We are in the midst of a pollution and extinction crisis and this summer’s catastrophic bushfires have shown us what the future looks like without urgent action.
It’s clear that our current environment laws are broken and tinkering around the edges with piecemeal reforms won’t fix a problem this big.
Right now, we have a once in a generation opportunity to change the trajectory of the places and wildlife we love.
The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act – our national environment laws – is up for its 10 year review.
We have to make sure the Morrison Government uses this opportunity to strengthen, not weaken, the laws that protect our magnificent forests, rivers, oceans and wildlife.
National leadership is urgently needed if we are to protect the people, places and wildlife we love.
We need to lift the environment above politics and entrust decision-making to independent science-based institutions like a National Environment Commission.
We need strong new laws and a national EPA to act as a watchdog and enforce the law.
With a new generation of environment laws and independent organisations to govern them, the places and wildlife we love can thrive.
Have your say and make sure the federal government understands that strong environmental laws are critical for the ongoing protection and restoration of Australia’s unique environment.
