Land & forests

Australia's biodiversity is the nation’s life support system. We need to protect our important native forests for future generations, and seek action to reverse the decline of our ecosystems.

Protecting Tassie's ancient forests

After decades of conflict environmental groups have negotiated a forestry peace agreement with the timber industry and unions, which is now enshrined in law.

Connectivity conservation

Traditional approaches to nature conservation — protecting and managing remnant habitats in national parks and reserves — are critical, but are not enough. We need innovative new approaches to safeguarding nature that restore and protect connectivity across land tenures and across the landscape.

Protecting our national parks

Across the country, our national parks are being opened up to logging, mining, grazing and shooting. State governments are damaging the places Australians love like our reefs, rainforests, bushland and beaches.

Our Great Dividing Range

The Great Dividing Range is the heartland of eastern Australia. Its mountainous corridor stretches 3,600 kilometres from the tropical rainforests of Cape York, through the Alps of NSW and the ACT, to the temperate woodlands of the Grampians in western Victoria. The Range encompasses Australia’s tallest mountains, most reliable rainfall and some of our greatest biological diversity. It is vital to life in Australia.
