Fund BioDiverse Reforestation, Not Coal Mines

This petition had 571 supporters

We request the Australian Federal Government to match funding for Australia's (and perhaps the world's) largest Biodiverse Reforestation carbon sink project, in Australia's northern wheat belt.

In this area 90% of the land has been cleared. This deforestation has led to land degradation and desertification.

"From logging, agricultural production and other economic activities, deforestation adds more atmospheric CO2 than the sum total of cars and trucks on the world's roads" (Scientific American).

Rather than governments funding coal mines, fund acquisition of degraded land and reforestation!

In Australia, rather than federally funding the Adani Coal Mine, that will emit 4.5 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases, fund reforestation in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, which restores both the land and local employment, whilst storing carbon to offset greenhouse gas emissions.

Children and their Future

Gaby in the video says:

Humanity is devastating the natural world.  What I care about is being lost — animals, forests, clean water and air. If we keep doing this, we will eventually make our planet barren for future generations. 

Adults, after you are gone, I and other children will not have the world we deserve.

Please wake up!
Nurture rather than spoil our beautiful planet! 

Please support Gaby and sign this petition

You can do more!

Don't wait for governments to act. You can donate to fund planting in one of the World's largest BioDiverse Reforestation carbon sink projects -- The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, and at the same time support Gaby to create her ecosystem restoration community project in her local area in Baulkham Hills in Sydney.

Why Ecosystem Restoration is so Important

What took nature billions of years to create will be gone soon, we are well on the way to the extinction of all life.

The impacts are real, from burning fossil fuels, deforestation, desertification, destruction of wetlands and pollution, we are causing species extinction at 1,000 to 10,000 times the background rate, and half of all species ever discovered disappearing.

United Nations predicts that the human population will reach 10 billion people shortly after 2050, which will increase the rate of damage to what is left of the natural world. 

Burning fossil fuels destroys coastal land, at least 25% of all people will have their homes flooded by the end of the century. Nearly 40% of the earths land surface is under agricultural cultivation where there were forests and bushland, letting this percentage go higher places all life at risk.

We want you to know that the natural world is priceless. You need to change your economics and policies to place large economic value on the natural world, that which matters most for all life our planet. You need to back smart innovation like renewable energy, reforestation, fast trains, driverless electric cars and new invention, rather than old world industries like coal, and vested interests that are killing us.

Doing so will cause system alteration in markets and people's behaviour, and industries and corporations that are currently destroying our future, and at the same time create new employment opportunities in restoring the natural world and enjoying it.
