Have your say on new federal nature laws

Right now, we have a once in a generation opportunity to help shape new federal nature laws. The Australian Government is currently designing new nature laws and have opened up an online survey so that you can have your say.

Let's stand up for nature and make sure these new laws create a thriving future for wildlife.

Complete the survey on the Australian government’s website to speak up for strong nature laws, then fill in the form to log it so we can track our collective impact.
