Australian Governments: Ensure Threatened Species Plans are formulated, funded, followed through.

As Australians we are the custodians of a unique and ancient suite of animals that have survived everything that nature has thrown at them – drought, rain, heat, fire, flood. The importance of these attributes to future generations should not be underestimated. The loss of species due to poor custodianship or a lack of funding in a rich, developed country such as ours, would be a disgrace. Take a moment to think how poorly you view those who hunted the Thylacine into extinction, and ask if you would like to be counted among them? We are morally obliged to save Australian species for the world’s people, for the future generations and for the animals themselves. We are the guardians of the planet's biodiversity and we are only given one chance. A species once extinct is gone forever. Threatened Species Plans need to be formulated, funded and followed through. As a matter of international importance and national pride, this should be a non partisan priority for all Australian Governments.
Recent media reports indicate that governments do not believe that people care about endangered species. Please sign this petition and show the Australian Government that you do care about saving Australian species from extinction.
