Protect our threatened species

Our most threatened species could slip into extinction because the Turnbull Government wants to slash the jobs of 60 of the people who are working to protect them.

Seventeen birds and mammals are expected to disappear in the next year 20 years unless Australia improves its protection of threatened species and their habitat.

The survival of species including the orange-bellied parrot, Northern hopping mouse and helmeted honeyeater depends on the community standing up stop the cuts to the Department of Environment and Energy staff who work to prevent Australia’s accelerating extinction rate.

Australians know that our threatened species and the environment are important and worth protecting, that climate change needs a serious response from government and that we need long-term resourcing for policy, protection and regulation.

Sign to send a message to Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg that the community will not stand for these cuts.
