Well-managed National parks are a safe haven for Queensland's endangered wildlife. National parks and other protected areas are one of the best ways to conserve nature and protect cultural values. They provide a legal safeguard for wildlife and connect us with rich, life-giving landscapes essential for our well being. As Queenslanders, we treasure our national parks and with the leaderships and consent of First Nations people, call on the Queensland Government to build a bigger and better system of parks and protected areas across the state.

Would you be surprised to know that one organisation is responsible for two-thirds of the coal burnt in Queensland? Would you be more surprised to learn that organisation is our elected State government?

In other words, the State government literally has the power to make change happen. Sign our petition to ask our politicians to take real action to fight coal’s costly contribution to climate change.
Up to 80% of the koala population in Southeast Queensland has been lost in just 20 years due to destruction of woodland habitat, traffic issues and domestic dog attacks. Sign our petition calling on the Palaszczuk Government to take urgent action to protect our emblem species.
