Expansive fossil fuel projects and deforestation are putting threatened wildlife at risk. We need new environmental laws now.
After a devastating bushfire season, expanding fossil fuel projects and deforestation are putting threatened wildlife like koalas at risk.
Yet under the cover of coronavirus, the fossil fuel lobby is trying to pressure the government to weaken their protection even further.
While we're all dealing with the coronavirus crisis, the climate and extinction crises haven't gone away.
We need new and comprehensive environmental laws that put our climate and wildlife before pollution and profits.
It is estimated that over 30,000 koalas perished in the Black Summer bushfires, with over 1 billion animals lost nationally. But while the country's in lockdown from COVID-19 - logging is continuing. In vulnerable koala habitats fossil fuel companies are trying to loosen laws that protect these animals.
Our koalas deserve a new generation of laws that protect them from harm.
Tell the Environment Minister to create environmental laws that actually work to protect koalas and other threatened species.
