Australia’s environmental laws are being rewritten for the first time in over 20 years.
This is a critical opportunity to ensure that the Government doesn’t lock in any more business as usual. These laws are outdated, with inadequate monitoring and enforcement, leaving loopholes for the ongoing destruction of nature.
So, we’re urgently calling on the Government for stronger national environmental laws, that:
- Enact strong and enforced National Environmental Standards that safeguard nature against further destruction.
- Properly fund habitat restoration and species recovery.
- Create an independent Environment Protection Australia (EPA) that will monitor and enforce these laws.
- Close legal loopholes that favour big businesses over nature.
If you love our oceans, sign our petition for stronger nature laws to help save it. Because when nature is a priority for Australians, it becomes a priority for the Government too.
