Our work

Our work

It all comes down to this: Without our living world, our lives aren’t possible. Yet we continue to blow past its physical limits.

By every measure, the environment that sustains us is in decline. At stake is our food and water. The air we breathe. A liveable climate. Human health and security. The future of our great cities. All the good stuff. It’s made environmentalists of us all.

So we’re building a movement to swap the destructive thinking of the past for the modern vision we need. One that’s better for all Australians — and for all life on Earth.

Campaigns for conservation

We're securing better laws and oversight for the ecosystems that sustain us, and meaningful protections for Australia's most important wild places.

Laws that support life

Laws that support life

Laws are meant to protect people. But our environmental laws are failing us. We’re calling for nationally consistent laws that support the life that supports us, and a watchdog to enforce them.

Tasmania's Forests

Tasmania's Forests

These forests support some of the most iconic (and peculiar) species on the planet. They also shore up the domestic water supply and store more CO2 than most. We’re fighting for their protection.

Victoria's Forests

Victoria's Forests

It sounds ridiculous because it is. Victoria’s last great forests are being turned into cheap office paper and worthless wood chips. We’re proposing an alternative ending.

Great Western Woodlands

Great Western Woodlands

There’s nowhere in the world like it. It supports biodiversity that keeps our climate in check. But the Great Western Woodlands needs formal recognition, not more mining.

Campaigns for climate action

For a climate that supports life in the future, we need all the options on the table. We’re keeping fossil fuels in the ground and promoting proven, scalable, nature-based solutions.

Great Australian Bight

Great Australian Bight

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill ruined ecosystems and lives. The Bight is deeper more remote, and stacked with oil the world can’t afford to burn. Let’s rule out a repeat.

Deforestation

Deforestation

An MCG-sized area of forest and bush is bulldozed every 2 minutes in Australia. To give life a chance, we need strong, sensible deforestation laws.

The Pilliga Forest

The Pilliga Forest

As Australia’s gas supply is sold off for export, life-supporting ecosystems like the Pilliga forest risk being carved up for unconventional gas. We’re the ones standing in their way.

The Kimberley

The Kimberley

Stunning landscapes, meandering rivers, vast marine sanctuaries — the Kimberley is home to life found nowhere else on earth. It’s no place for fossil fuel mega-projects.

Building a movement

We’re changing the conversation about nature, one conversation at a time. Join the sophisticated community organising program putting the power back in the hands of everyday people.
