Next steps in the campaign to protect NSW nature: be on standby to join the action at Parliament House when the legislation is due to be debated in parliament. 19 November is a guess, so by RSVP'ing here, we will ensure you get the notification as soon as we know!

We've come a long way

Thanks to all of you have been standing together in opposition to Mike Baird's plans to pave the way for broad scale land clearing and tree clearing in NSW. Together, we've entered hundreds of submissions, rallied together, met MPs from all parties, stood with farmers, chefs and had hundreds of conversations and built a broad base of support for protecting NSW from the kind of destruction we've seen in QLD under similar legislation to what is being proposed in NSW.

The NSW Government may attempt to pass this legislation before the end of the year, potentially in the next few weeks.

RSVP to be on standby to stand together and show our support for NSW nature.

Why does this matter?

Thousands of possums, quolls, koalas and gliders will be killed each year if Premier Mike Baird scraps our tree-clearing laws. Nationals MPs, big agri-business and developers want to allow landholders trash our precious woodlands and urban bushland by replacing the Native Vegetation Act with weaker tree-clearing controls. These changes will:

  • add extinction pressures to our state's 1000 threatened species;
  • threaten our clean, reliable water supplies;
  • turn our fertile land into wasteland through erosion and salinity; 
  • put landmark trees and bushland at risk; and
  • add further to Australia's carbon pollution.

RSVP and be on standby to stand up for nature!
