Australians have been given the opportunity to lodge a submission to the 10-year review of Australia’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act .
Australia has an appalling record in how we manage the environment, which has resulted in the loss of native flora and fauna. Our current trajectory and the rapidly increasing number of vulnerable, threatened, and endangered species, is leading us on a path of permanent destruction. Non-humans and humans all depend on a healthy, functioning environment for survival. This includes high quality land, air, water, and marine habitats. The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act is failing to deliver its objectives; is not being administered as intended; and is not sufficient to address Australia’s current and future environmental challenges.
Unfortunately, the preferred method for sending in submissions is via the Governments online platform. We have tried to make this process as easy as possible for you.
Submissions are due by 5pm (AEST) Friday 17 April 2020.
- OPTIONAL – if you would like more details, you can read the discussion paper for the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act here.
- Download Animal Liberation’s Submission Template (Word Doc). We recommend altering the submission to have a greater impact.

- Done! Thank you for speaking up for Australia’s native wildlife and the environment.
