Even as we grapple with COVID-19 and huge changes in our lives, issues like climate change, collapsing ecosystems and animal extinctions have unfortunately not gone away.

Victoria has already lost 81 species of plants, animals and birds to extinction, and many more are now on the brink.

The Black Summer fires we just experienced burned 1.4 million hectares in Victoria and destroyed more than 50% of the habitat for 185 rare and threatened Victorian animals, plants and other creatures.

Right now, the Victorian Parliament is looking at how to protect Victoria’s environment and save species from extinction, and you have a chance to have your say.

Make a submission to the Victorian Parliament Ecosystem Inquiry today, and speak up for a healthy environment in which we can all thrive.

Submission tips:

Your submission will be more powerful if you take a few minutes to:

  • Change the ‘template email’ so it’s written in your own words. It doesn’t have to be long or detailed.
  • Share your own stories about Victoria’s special places and creatures
  • Mention solutions (we have put some suggested solutions for you in the template email)

Thank you for helping to ensure this Inquiry delivers solutions for our threatened ecosystems and wildlife.

Breathing new life into Melbourne Cemetery

Thousands of people pass by or through Melbourne General Cemetery every day, but we aren’t treating it as a precious inner-city open space. Much of it is very dry and degraded, with minimal vegetation, and many old graves are in disrepair. It could be much better.


Skyrail is coming to Brunswick

It’s official: Brunswick will get a skyrail like Coburg some time in the next five years. So what can we expect? 


The government should go further and faster on COVID

If something terrible happens on Friday night and you call an ambulance, how long will it take to arrive? That’s not normally a concern for those of us living in the inner city, but this year ambulances have too often been unable to get to serious emergencies on time. We...
