Let’s change the laws for nature
We live in a truly special country. But weak environment laws and government inaction have made Australia a world leader in extinction and deforestation. Extinction, however, is a choice. It's clearer now, more than ever, that Australia's environment law needs reform so that the places we love can be protected.
Walk in nature to end Australia’s extinction crisis
Celebrate World Wildlife Day by taking part in our Nature Walk Challenge. From 3-13 March, join thousands of Australians walking to protect endangered animals and the places they call home. Be a part of the movement today.
Get a fair say

Protect Tassie’s World Heritage Areas
Since 2016, Wilderness Society has been fighting to stop developer Wild Drake from building huts and helipad facilities in remote Lake Malbena. It’s been a long battle through the courts, made possible by our passionate community of nature lovers. But now your help is urgently needed to protect Lake Malbena and Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area for future generations.

Australia’s deforestation crisis is devastating wildlife and harming the climate. Shockingly, the latest Queensland government figures for the year 2018-19 shows that 668,208 hectares of forest and bushland was bulldozed in just one year. It's time to stop the destruction.
