Australia’s national parks protect some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, and provide critical habitat for our unique native plants and wildlife – many of them threatened. National parks are a central part of our work to conserve nature and biodiversity in Australia.
Unfortunately right now, across the country, State Governments are opening up our national parks for logging, hunting, grazing, mining and other destructive practices for short term political gain. The damage this will do could last generations and threatens to drive our endangered species towards extinction.
Right now we have the opportunity to give these places we love the protection they deserve.
Most people assume that national parks are protected and controlled by the Federal Government – but unfortunately, it isn’t the case. The Federal Government needs to act now, in this session of Parliament to protect our national parks and reserves system, by amending national environment law to include protection for national parks.
Thanks to hundreds of people like you calling on the Federal Government we were able to put the brakes on plans to hand federal environmental protection powers to the states. Now we need to protect our parks under national environment law once and for all.
Take action now to protect the places and wildlife you love. Many thanks for your help!
