Save the ABC Science Unit

Dear Michelle,

Since I was 13, I've been listening to the ABC Science show every week. It has shaped my intellect, and given me an understanding of things I never knew were important. I don't think I'm alone in this.

There is nothing else like it in Australia, and there never will be, because commercial radio will never invest in the basic research required to make it viable.

Science education or STEM is vital to the government's jobs and growth agenda. Losing the ABC science unit will hamper that for generations to come.

I urge you to reconsider the decision to abolish it, as well as many other symbols of the ABC's integrity and commitment to Australia that are currently under threat.

Why is this important?

This is important because the ABC Science Unit is the only source of independent and objective science journalism remaining in Australia.

It provides unbiased advice on all the important topical stories, as well as the latest trends from overseas. It is critical that we keep it alive.

How it will be delivered

It would be so great to get enough signatures to deliver in person.
