Calling for Nature Laws that Work

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 06:00 PM · 7 rsvps

With a federal election fast approaching, now is the time to get involved!

 

Your involvement can have a big impact on the outcome of the election, because people power really works!

 

Right here in Tasmania, the environment is in crisis. After a series of devastating bushfires in our protected areas, it's even more important to protect what we have left. Iconic threatened species like Swift Parrots, Tasmanian Devils, Quolls and Giant Freshwater Crayfish continue to lose their habitat. Our ocean environments are threatened by big business developments and global warming, and the places we've worked so hard to protect for future generations are being gifted to private businesses with secret deals. 

You can make a big difference this election by joining us and helping to urgently raise the profile of nature protection and the need for Nature Laws that Work. 

 

Join other Hobart nature lovers at this calling party - RSVP on the right.

 

The Wilderness Society exists to support the life that supports us. At the core of our work, we connect, train, support and empower local communities to stand up for nature in their local area, right across the country.

Melbourne Change the Laws of Nature Calling Party

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 05:30 PM
Wilderness Society Office in West Melbourne, Australia

When: 5.30 - 7.30pm, Wednesday 27 March 2019
Where: Wilderness Society Office, 351-355 King Street, West Melbourne
Who: You, me, our mates who also want to get to work to protect the places we love.

 

This Federal election Australia has a choice that could mean the difference between the extinction of iconic species like the koala, or turning the corner towards a brighter future for our environment...and you can help us ensure our supporters know what is at stake.

 

Australia is ranked #2 in the world for biodiversity loss, and #1 for mammal extinction. Even the iconic koala was recently added to the threatened species list. But with your help we can ensure it is the first species since the introduction of failing Federal legislation to recover.

 

We have commitments from some of the major parties to overhaul the failing laws, and to introduce an independent Environment Protection Authority in Australia, which promises to give our environment and communities a voice...not just to pander to the interests of big business.

 

This is a huge opportunity, the likes of which we've never seen before, and our supporters need to know. This is where you come in.

 

Together we will call our supporters to let them know how significant the opportunity before us is, and we will invite them to our campaign launch to hear more about the campaign, what's at stake, and how they can be involved..

 

These sessions are a great way for anyone to make a contribution, no matter your age or experience, and to meet new like-minded people friends. Full training is provided and support staff are always on hand. 



Haven't jumped on the phones with us before? There's never been a better time to get involved, we have a bold plan to make new laws for Nature the number 1 issue this coming election and with all of us working together, we'll do it.


The team will show newcomers the ropes, cover the fundamentals of the campaign, and get on the phones with you. All you need to bring is yourself, and a friend. 

 

Please RSVP so we have an idea on numbers and supply enough phones and snacks.

Brisbane - Changing the Laws of Nature - Campaign launch

Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 09:00 AM
Uniting Church West End in Highgate Hill , Australia
This is your chance to play a part in one of the most significant wins for our environment in a generation!

Here in West End, on 30 March we’re coming together to kick off the federal election campaign and learn how we can win strong new nature laws and an independent watchdog that can ensure they are enforced.
 

And we're going to use people power to make sure it happens!


This is how change happens—together we can create an unstoppable movement for change.


With a federal election upon us, now is the time to get involved! 


Together, through a people powered movement, we can raise the voices of communities and send a message to politicians, big business, and vested interests that can’t be ignored.

 

The Wilderness Society’s Movement For Life program puts the power back in the hands of communities. People power is fuelled by conversations. At its heart, that’s what community organising is: people talking to people.

 

Thank you for joining this groundbreaking campaign for the environment, that will deliver strong new national laws that actually protect nature.
