Email Tips +

  • Make it your own – add a few lines about why you personally care.
  • Keep your message short and punchy – you don't need to be an expert, just explain why this matters. 
  • Be specific – ask Bill Shorten, Tanya Plibersek and Tony Burke to champion strong new nature laws and institutions.
  • Be polite and encouraging – decision makers more likely to listen if you're friendly.

Talking points:

  • Australia is facing an extinction, pollution and deforestation crisis. 
  • Our current environment laws are broken, and tinkering around the edges with piecemeal reforms won't fix the problem. 
  • We need to lift our living world above politics and entrust decision-making to independent science-based institutions like a National Environment Commission. 
  • We need strong new laws and a national EPA to act as a watchdog and enforce the law.
