It’s very clear from the current state of Victoria’s environment that bold action is needed by the Andrews Government to protect the places and wildlife we love – our National Parks, forests, rivers, beaches, oceans, native plants and animals.
On Thursday 28 November, the fifth anniversary of the election of the Andrews Government, environment and community groups from across Victoria will rally together to demand real action to protect Victoria's nature. Will you join us?
As Victoria's biodiversity continues to rapidly decline, habitats become more stressed, species become more threatened, and the climate crisis escalates, we can’t waste any more time.
So let’s get together to show our community expects more action by the Andrews Government to address these urgent problems.
We will be urging for:
- New and better funded National Parks
- Better protection for our forests, rivers, beaches, oceans and wildlife.
- Stronger laws to protect threatened species and habitats that address the size of the crisis we are facing.
We need to make sure there are as many of us as possible to demonstrate that people who know and care about nature want action – that Victorians want new National Parks and better protection for nature.
The current lack of leadership to protect nature is real. However the rally will not be all doom and gloom. We want to deliver a positive message of what can and should be done in this term of government to protect nature.
To make this happen, we need everyone to bring a banner, sign, puppet or other craft work to represent the special place you think deserves better from the government.
The rally will be followed by a BYO picnic in Treasury Gardens with live music from very special guests.
