Environment, Biodiversity & Natural Heritage
The Greens were founded on the vision of a robust and healthy environment, and that vision continues today. We are working hard to promote environmental values in Parliament and protect our unique wildlife and wild places.
The 2011 State of the Environment report (SoE) shows Australia’s biodiversity on land and sea in alarming decline.
The Greens successfully negotiated the $946 million Biodiversity Fund as part of the Clean Energy Future Package, funding communities to restore bushland and native habitats and reduce the impacts of weeds and feral animals.
The Greens are pursuing reforms to our national environmental laws to urgently protect threatened species and to make sure our iconic areas, like the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, are protected for future generations.
We need environment laws that work to stop the biodiversity crisis, save our threatened species, and protect our precious places. Sign up to find out more about our work to fix our environment laws.
