Australian sea lions are the most endangered sea lion species in the world. These charismatic creatures are found only in our country, so it’s up to us to do everything possible to protect them. That’s why Humane Society International nominated the Australian sea lion for an upgraded listing under our environmental laws.
Currently the Australian sea lion is listed as Vulnerable to extinction, but the science shows it meets the criteria for being classified as Endangered. This uplisting would enable increased protection for the Australian sea lion, and the responsibility for ensuring the future for the iconic species lies squarely in our country’s hands.
Sign your name below to thank Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg for the current protections given to the Australian sea lion, and ask him to uplist the species to Endangered in order to protect its survival into the future.
