Calling for Nature Laws that Work

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 05:30 PM

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.

Perth Change the Laws of Nature Calling Party

Wednesday, May 01, 2019 at 03:00 PM

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!

 

All across Australia the environment is in crisis. Our State WA government recently gave fracking the green light. Deforestation is skyrocketing, threatening our land, waterways and wildlife, including the iconic koala. We have a recycling crisis and plastic waste is ruining our rivers, bushland and beaches - and having a critical impact on marine life in particular. The mighty Fitzroy river in the Kimberley is under threat and and other essential waterways around Australia are being sucked dry and polluted by over-development.

You can make a big difference this election by joining us to urgently raise the profile of nature protection within local communities.

 

Join us at this calling party - RSVP on the right.

 

When: May 1, 3pm - 5pm.
Where: City West Lotteries Building, 2 Delhi St West Perth.
What: Calling Party to Change the Laws of Nature!

Melbourne Change the Laws of Nature Calling Party

Wednesday, May 01, 2019 at 06:00 PM
Wilderness Society Office in West Melbourne, Australia

When: 6-8pm, Wednesday 1 May 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.
Bring: A laptop and mobile phone and hands-free kit if you have them, we have equipment to use as well. 

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.

Perth - Wilderness Society Federal Election Campaign Night

Wednesday, May 01, 2019 at 06:00 PM
City West Lotteries House

Together this federal election, we can change the laws of nature. We have a chance to secure strong new national laws that actually protect our environment. We can change the tide of environmental vandalism and give power back to communities.

 

The federal election provides a big opportunity to secure strong new national nature laws that work and an independent watchdog to enforce the laws.

 

What: Change the Laws of Nature Campaign and federal election information session.
Where: 2 Delhi St, West Perth - City West Lotteries House.
When: 1st of May, 6pm - 7pm.

 

Places are limited, so please RSVP.

 

Elections are decided in key electorates that tip the balance as to who has the numbers to form government. We are working in two marginal electorates this election: Reid (NSW) and Bonner (QLD). The political parties will be watching every move in these areas and will be highly sensitive to views they are getting back from voters. It’s the perfect opportunity to engage and move voters on why Australia needs strong new nature laws that work.

 

Politicians are feeling the pressure from their constituents. Now it’s time to up the ante in these crucial seats and lock in the strongest possible policies for nature and climate—through the power of the voters considering environmental policies when they step up to the ballot box.

 

Momentum is building for nature and climate but we have to keep the pressure up. You can help with this. Join us on 1 May to be a part of this once in a generation opportunity to see effective change for nature.

Sydney Door Knock Saturday 4th May

Saturday, May 04, 2019 at 10:00 AM
Drummoyne Oval Pavilion in Drummoyne, Australia

Join us as we come together around Australia to ensure we take advantage of this once in a generation opportunity to Change the Laws of Nature in Australia.

 

At 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 our failing national environment laws and to introduce an independent EPA 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 be door knocking in strategically important areas and we need your help. Training and resources will be provided and we promise you will have fun, meet new friends, and really feel like you have contributed to positive change, because you will have. Your team leaders are all experienced door knockers and will be there to guide and mentor you.

 

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 and make new friends. Full training is provided and support staff are always on hand.

 

What to bring: In addition to bringing yourself and a great attitude :-) — you might like to wear comfortable shoes, bring sun protection and drinking water.

 

Join us by adding your RSVP at the top on the right!
