Email your MP to Act for Birds
UPDATE: The Federal Labor Party has just released their draft policy platform and it includes new federal environment laws, strong independent agencies and a national environment protection authority. The policy platform is still in draft stage and will be debated at their national conference next month.
Let’s challenge all parties to take a strong position and include a new framework of national laws in their final National Platforms that must include:
Creating national environment laws that genuinely protect our unique birdlife;
Establishing independent institutions that set national environmental standards and operate transparently and independently of government; and
Guarantying community rights and participation in environmental decision-making.
Make your voice heard and help protect Australian birds by writing to your local MP asking them to back a new framework of national environment laws as part of their party’s National Platform.
Make sure to include why you think stronger nature laws are vital for the future of our birds and the future of Australia.
