Let's end deforestation in Australia

Australians love the bush. It’s a national tragedy that Australia is one of the world’s worst deforestation hotspots.

Deforestation is our country's greatest hidden environmental crisis.

Deforestation is skyrocketing as many state governments gut environmental laws, big business pillage our forests, and the Australian Government refuses to stop the destruction.

Deforestation is rife across Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Australia now competes with the Amazon, the Congo and Borneo for the gold medal in deforestation.

Together, we have to stop the bulldozers urgently. State and Federal Governments must act. The Morrison Government ...

Deforestation is rife across Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Australia now competes with the Amazon, the Congo and Borneo for the gold medal in deforestation.

Together, we have to stop the bulldozers urgently. State and Federal Governments must act. The Morrison Government can legislate to bring a halt to deforestation now. New laws would protect wilderness areas, stop the bulldozers and restore the land. It will protect threatened native wildlife and their environment which supports us all.

If you’d like to personalise you could mention

  • One native animal is killed every second because of deforestation

  • One football-field sized area of forest and bushland is bulldozed every three minutes

  • Bulldozers, often dragging a chain between them, tear up forest and bush. These trees aren’t used for anything. They’re burned or left to rot. This is a completely wasteful practice.

  • Poor water quality is one of the biggest threats to the Great Barrier Reef. Deforestation and tree clearing in Great Barrier Reef catchments leads to erosion and run-off of sediment into the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

  • In addition to killing our precious native wildlife, bulldozing forests and bushland is also releasing large amounts of carbon emissions.
