  • Dark Sky Park Accreditation for Bunya Mountains
    The world is quickly losing its dark skies due to light pollution. Light pollution doubled globally between 1992 and 2012. Bunya Mountains has unique fauna including fire beetles and powerful owls that need dark skies for their survival with Australia's vulnerable nocturnal fauna being at threat of extinction given the impacts of climate change.

  • Ban shark culling in Australia
    We need to shift our awareness and understand there are other ways to prevent shark attacks from occurring and killing them is not the answer. It is unethical and will destroy our ocean causing a imbalance in the oceanic ecosystems, leading to serious environmental consequences. No matter how you look at it, sharks have been around for 400 million years. Many sharks are becoming endangered and need our voice. Sharks help keep populations of their prey in check, weeding out the weak and sick animals to keep the overall population healthy. Their disappearance can set off a chain reaction through out the ocean and even impact people on shore. If sharks disappear it would be bad news for us all.

  • Protect S.E. NSW kangaroos
    Kangaroo populations will be negatively impacted. Even more cruelty will be inflicted on kangaroos than now because multiple shooters both professional and amateurs can shoot; Shot kangaroos meat can be used for non-commercial purposes; Shooting can take place statewide extending out past the current harvest zones; All sizes from young to adult can be shot. The government says only 13% of the quota is being currently used and the reason for this is because the commercial shooters must abide by size limits in order to keep a stable population of breeding stock. With these changes all of these precautions have been removed and all agencies, farmers, and industries involved will simply decimate the population of kangaroos to point of extinction, locally, regionally and in the state targeted areas being allowed. Contrary to what farmers always say, their numbers are not 'exploding' - how can they when they only give birth to one joey a year? Their chances of surviving are threatened not only by shooters but also loss of habitat, drought, fire, car collision, dog and other predatorial attacks, fence hanging and disease. A small mob of kangaroos is seen as a 'plague' by these farmers. Instead of caving into farmers all the time the government should also listen to what Australian residents want. Kangaroos are becoming locally extinct in areas where they used to be abundant. Eventually there will be none left and it will be too late to act. Please sign this petition and share.

  • Save Jesmond Bush
    Have you been to George McGregor Park? It’s a verdant refuge for native species nestled amongst the suburbs in Jesmond. The edges of the bush have been slowly encroached upon by suburban development for decades, and what remains is some of Newcastle’s last remaining habitat for impressive and unusual species like the Powerful Owl and the Squirrel Glider, the Black-eyed Susan and Hakea bakerii, all rare and protected. The Jesmond to Rankin Park bypass will be constructed right down the middle of this native habitat by Roads and Maritime Services. The design was recently updated by RMS to better accommodate connectivity for cyclists. What about connectivity for the animals living in Jesmond bush? The current design sees a giant wall of dirt blocking the path and free movement of the fauna in Jesmond bush, impacting their ability to breed, feed and ultimately survive. There are alternatives to the current design that would improve the outlook for wildlife, such as the use of pylons which will in the long run leave less of a clearing footprint and better accommodate the animals inhabiting this beautiful patch of native bush. We the undersigned call on Roads and Maritime Services to improve the design of the Jesmond to Rankin Park bypass to maximise habitat connectivity and ensure local wildlife populations continue to thrive . Sign the petition and let Sonia Hornery, Member for Wallsend know that we value the species living in George McGregor Park and the long-term preservation of local habitat.

  • Make Commercial Whaling Illegal
    Killing whales for food has occurred in some cultures for thousands of years, but commercial whaling is quickly devastating the world's whale populations. Commercial whaling involves hunting down these majestic creatures and turning them into barrels of oil for profit. Whales are essential for healthy oceans - they play an important role in the food web and help the oceans deal with the impacts of climate change. Japan is one of the world's biggest whalers. Although they say the slaughter happens for "research", the same research can now be conducted without killing the animals. Most whale populations have decreased by 90% in the last 200 years. If we don't act now to ban commercial whaling, our grandchildren may only see the beauty of whales in museums.

  • Stop Land Clearing That Will Wipe Out Koalas
    Koala populations are already struggling in certain parts of Queensland such as Dalby. Habitat is critical to the survival of the koala and up to 80% of koalas who lose their habitat are likely to be wiped out. The proposed destruction of koala habitat is for new coal seam gas wells on Queensland's Western Downs. Coal seam gas mining is a threat to farmlands and water resources not to mention the public health risks which have not yet been properly assessed. Potential harm could include an increased risk of cancer. What else can we do?

  • SOLVE Alliance against meat chicken farms in Spring Creek, Lockyer Valley
    SOLVE stands for Save Our Lifestyle, Values & Environment. We were here first. Some neighbours farm fruit and vegetables on a commercial scale which will be contaminated by bird faecal matter. Others settled here for quiet enjoyment in retirement. All our tank water supplies will be contaminated by airborne dust from the sheds venting and our health and children's health will decline. A result will be that the value of all neighbouring properties will decline. The developer does not live in or contribute to the area, 1 or 2 new jobs will be created but many more will be lost as fruit and vegetable businesses will cease. A major koala corridor runs along the boundary of the property and chicken shed fans will blow dust and faecal matter directly onto the corridor 24 X 7. There are many obvious faults with the development application that have been overlooked and when brought to the attention of local and state bureaucrats, they are refusing to even consider reviewing the decision. There are 20 neighbouring farms & small acreages that surround the site, but dust, odour and noise will permeate further than just those properties. The developer has similar farms in other districts and is known for not following court orders to comply with conditions of approval. He has nevertheless been allowed to continue operating as local authorities are unwilling or incapable of compelling compliance. This operator does not live on site, nor is he interested in operating to industry best practice and bird welfare would be low in his priorities. This is a moneymaking venture affecting many residents and the heart of the operation is the maltreatment of sentient creatures. It is abhorrent and an abomination that we do not want in our district, a district that the local council promotes as a clean and green 'salad bowl'.

  • Save ABC integrity and variety especially on RN
    Where else can an Australian audience get the variety and depth of views and visions and above all the stimulation of such a range of ideas? Where else is there such a range of respected specialist journalists who cover everything from arts to science and religion to rock? Why is the ABC accused of left-wing bias when it shows opinions of all spectra and gives voice - although not as much as it could or should - to those who don't have access to commercial media. Why don't the Board and your minister develop pride in this unique and irreplaceable institution and those who work for it, instead of white-anting and undermining the amazingly talented a dedicated staff? There is no place for Information and enlightenment in the categories below but the ABC covers them all so I've ticked them all!
