On August 25, 2017, the Berejiklian government put threatened species and our natural heritage at risk by weakening the laws that protect nature in NSW.

In November 2017, we took the Berejiklian government to court to scrap its destructive land-clearing laws, to defend nature and the rule of law. On March 9, 2018, the Land and Environment Court ruled in our favour that the NSW Government’s land-clearing laws invalid because they were made unlawfully. 

You can read more information about this important case in our media release.

We were represented by public interest environmental lawyers EDO NSW and would like to thank them for their tireless work to protect nature. We would also like to thank the hundreds of people who donated to support the case. 

As the state’s peak environment organisation, we will continue to expose the damage of land clearing and to campaign until we have laws that protect nature.
