Stop Australia's land clearing crisis

Dear Liz,
Did you know that today is International Day of Forests?
It's a timely reminder to stop and think how much our forests mean to us. Forests are the natural environment for our native species: they provide us with clean water and air.
Liz, forests are our tool against climate change. Australia has some of the most carbon-dense forests in the world and if we continue to sacrifice them, then we're not fulfilling our pledge to overcome climate change.
Today, on the International Day of Forests, it hurts me to say that our forests are in critical danger... and I need your help. Please donate $36 to work with me to save them.

In the last three years, Queensland alone has lost over 850,000 hectares of native forest due to land clearing. And it's taking its toll...
Stop Land Clearing
  • Around 20% of Australian mammals, 7% of reptiles and 13% of birds are listed as Extinct, Endangered or Vulnerable.
  • More than 100 species have become extinct in New South Wales in the last 200 years.
  • 1,700 animal and plant species are at risk of extinction, including the koala.
Giant chains are being dragged across the land behind huge bulldozers, intent on destruction. They are tearing down the trees, killing our native wildlife and releasing tonnes of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
Give now
Liz, please help me in this fight against land clearing by making a donation of $36 today. Thank you.
Yours for nature,

Lyndon Schneiders
National Director
P.S. Thousands of hectares of Australian forests are being cleared every day. Please donate today to stop this madness!
