About the campaignEnvironmental laws are critical to a healthy society. These laws protect our fragile ecosystems, our health, our communities and our economy.
There is a growing chorus among big industry, state governments and the Federal Government that our federal environment law, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC Act) needs to be watered down and wound back.
On the table is handing state and territory governments the power to assess and approve projects in their state, without the need for direct Federal Government approval and oversight.
We strongly believe this handover will set us back decades.
So large is this threat to our nation’s heritage that the largest environmental alliance in Australian history was founded – united by the need to protect the Places You Love.
Together, we represent over 1.5 million everyday Australians – people that love our national parks, wildlife and precious natural beauty.
