Review of the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act
The Victorian Government is currently reviewing its main law that protects nature, the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act. This means that we are at a critical time to get a better law that protects nature in this State.
Let's not miss this opportunity to make the laws that protect the species and places you love, stronger! Get involved and tell the government what you think!
