Strong National Nature Laws

Our national laws are not doing enough to halt the extinction crisis. To make a difference, we need our representatives to deliver strong nature laws.

Act now

We've identified 334 Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) across Australia. These are the irreplaceable biodiversity hotspots that birds can't live without.
