"The Albanese government has made bold environmental promises over the last
year. Given the parlous state of nature in Australia, these commitments are

The promises include ending new extinctions, fixing national nature laws and
protecting 30% of our land and waters. Achieving these goals requires a lot of
money. So how does last night’s federal budget stack up?

Our collective expertise spans biodiversity conservation science and policy. In
our view, the budget takes very small steps towards making good on the many
government’s promises, but falls well short of what is needed.

Australia’s threatened species and ecosystems will not survive more funding
neglect. It’s time to question our national priorities, and start funding the
environment that sustains us."
