Federal environmental laws

Under pressure from big business, the Prime Minister plans to walk away from national protection for our environment by surrendering environmental powers to state governments.

Our national environment law protects the places and wildlife we love

For decades, federal environmental laws have played a vital role in protecting nationally important environmental values from destructive development proposals supported by state governments.

Under pressure from big business, the Prime Minister is walking away from national protection for our environment by surrendering environmental powers to state governments.

Devolving federal approval powers to the states will set environment protection in Australia back by 30 years, making it easier for powerful industry interests to degrade and destroy the places we love.

The threat to our nation’s heritage is so serious that we helped to establish the largest environmental alliance in our country’s history. The Places You Love alliance stands for protecting the places and wildlife we love.

Together, we represent over 1.5 million Australians – people who love our national parks, wildlife, and precious natural places.

You can help to protect the Places You Love by sending an email to the Prime Minister, opposing the transfer of federal environmental approval powers to the states.
