Environment Scorecard 2016

Protecting what we love

Our environment faces huge challenges - the places, species and Aussie lifestyle that we love are under threat.

Together, we can solve these challenges. We have the solutions to halt dangerous climate change, save our Reef, and protect our unique but threatened Aussie wildlife.

The next Australian Government has a leading role to play in helping Australia rise to these challenges.
