Your support in action
With your continued support, together we are making a big difference for nature. Here are some recent highlights of your support in action:
We saw a massive groundswell of support for the Channel Country rivers and floodplains in the Lake Eyre Basin; web-based satellite monitoring platform Watch on Nature made big strides; we released a major report exposing deforestation and biodiversity risk for financial institutions; and much more besides!
There were some big steps forward across the Wilderness Society's campaigns, including one of the biggest outcomes for precious native forests ever.
We've seen multiple state-wide billboard campaigns, big support for the King Island community in their fight against fossil fuels, massive news for native forest logging in Victoria, and much more besides.
Backed by people like you, we closed out 2022 with a bang! Together, we’ve made decision-makers aware of Australia's deforestation crisis; continued to fight for the integrity of World Heritage in lutruwita / Tasmania; exposed deforestation through rolling out satellite monitoring tool Watch on Nature; and supported some must-watch nature films to boot.
On the other side of the world, you asked for stronger regulations to help stop European-funded deforestation of Australia's forests. Then back here, you exposed industries responsible for the mindless release of Australia's oceans for fossil fuels development and much more.
Thanks to you, together we got rid of the last coal mining lease from the doorstep of Wollemi, we're addressing the need for strong community rights all over Australia and we made your voice heard in Brussels!
From launching a powerful billboard campaign to highlight Queensland's shocking deforestation, to showing from the air what's at risk if mining is allowed to take place on the doorstep of Wollemi National Park, and much more, it's all thanks to your support.
From stopping coal mining on the doorstep of Wollemi National Park to helping usher in the biggest national park ever created in Australia in Munga-Thirri / Simpson Desert, thanks to your support it was a busy end to 2021!
From lutruwita's / Tasmania's King Island and Lake Malbena, to NSW's Wollemi National Park and WA's South West forests, it's been a busy few months for the Wilderness Society, and all made possible because of you. Here, reports of our work from July to September 2021.
We couldn't do it without you. With your support, here are some highlights from April to June 2021 where we are making a difference for nature, including forging a future for Tassie's forests and the Emerald Link in East Gippsland.
We couldn't do it without you. With your support, highlights from January to March 2021 where we are making a difference for nature, including a new report into the state and management of WA's native flora, pressure on fossil fuels, and momentum for new nature laws.
2020 was a year like no other, with bushfires and floods pushing the impacts of climate change to the forefront. Not to mention the pandemic. Yet despite all this, with your support we achieved spectacular successes for Australia’s nature.
