Happy World Ocean Day!
Here in Australia we have the most beautiful beaches in the world and we know how to enjoy them. We truly are the ocean-going nation.
We also know our oceans are under threat. From overfishing to warming, sea level rise and pollution - our oceans are in grave danger. Eight million tonnes of plastic are dumped into the world’s oceans each year. With 95% of plastics discarded after a single use and 85% of Australian seabirds affected by plastic pollution it’s clear there is a problem.Read more
After a long-fought campaign, the weekend’s results in South Australia delivered us strong swings across the state. Thanks to your support, we have doubled our vote and given a strong voice for climate action and protecting the Great Australian Bight.
Thank you for supporting our campaign. Thousands of people volunteered their time, and donated their energy and support. It’s thanks to you we made it!
This was a vote for our children’s future. I am incredibly proud of the strong support for climate action across South Australia. These swings make SA the most progressive state in the nation.
