Rescue Our Parks

Wild, windswept coastal beaches. Ancient rainforests and towering mountain trees. Desert lakes that sparkle from white to pink and alpine summits covered in snow.
These are just some of the experiences you can expect when visiting Victoria’s incredible national parks.
We love these special places but they are in danger. Successive state government cutbacks have put our parks at risk of being overrun with weeds and feral animals.
Basic amenities such as clean toilets and clear signage are being graffitied and run into the ground.
Please sign our petition calling on the Victorian Government to ‘Rescue our Parks’ by reversing previous cutbacks and providing Parks Victoria with the funds it needs to care for our parks.
We are calling on the Victorian Government to:
- Immediately return Parks Victoria funding to at least 2010-11 levels (an increase of at least $30 million a year).
- Develop a future funding plan ensuring substantial increases to build the resources and expertise to fix up our parks, and address the many threats including weeds, pests and the pressures of climate change.
- Make parks special places with appropriate tracks, signs and facilities so they are welcoming to all Victorians.
