Our laws must work for nature

The Australian Government have announced that they intend to establish an enforcement agency before we fix our current nature laws. Only a full package of reforms can protect birds.

Our laws need to work for nature

The Australian Government have announced a new enforcement agency, but failed to deliver the rest of the package Australian birds and nature needs to stop an extinction crisis in Australia.

Building enforcement and information bodies without delivering strong standards for nature simply won’t work. It’s like setting up a court to administer broken laws.

Help ensure the Government pass the full reforms package birds need. Simply:

  1. Add your details to our handy form to find your Federal Representatives
  2. (Optional) Add why saving nature matters for you and your local community
  3. Press ‘Send my email’ to email your local Federal MP
  4. Share this page with your friends and family

It will only take you seconds, to help ensure the Albanese Government delivers on its promise of no new extinctions.

Together, we can get the laws we need, to protect the birds you love, forever!
