PROTECT AND RESTORE NATURE

People depend on a healthy environment to thrive, yet in Victoria we are facing an extinction crisis, many of our ecosystems are on the brink of collapse. 

Labor still supports native forest logging, is allowing gas drilling in our oceans near the 12 Apostles, continues to allow duck hunting and is failing to fund vital programs that could restore habitat and protect threatened species. 

The Greens will push the next government in Victoria to centre First Nations people in Caring for Country, create thousands of jobs in habitat restoration and secure a healthy environment for all of us. 

We want to

  • End native forest logging in 2023, with a transition plan to move workers into new jobs and make the most of our existing plantation forests.
  • Introduce a moratorium on new water licences, centering First Nations rights to water and a plan to return water for healthy rivers.
  • Ban new oil and gas drilling in our oceans and an end to coal burning in Victoria by 2030. 
  • Ending native duck hunting and an overhaul of wildlife laws that currently allow large-scale wildlife killing permits.
  • Strengthen Victoria’s environmental assessment process so it has the teeth to stop destructive projects, and communities are not left fighting them off one by one.

Add your name and join the campaign to protect and restore Victoria's unique environment.

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.

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...
