Parks Protector monthly giving program

The only way Victoria's special natural places will be saved is if people like you stand up in support of them.

Will you consider becoming a Parks Protector?

Right now some of Victoria's exceptional, often unique, animals like the Brush-Tailed Rock Wallaby and the tiny Mountain Pygmy-possum are struggling for survival.

 

 

And as the months and years go by, you're losing bats and bandicoots, not to mention owls, babblers and many, many more.

Even your state emblem, the cute little Leadbeater's Possum, is listed as Critically Endangered - the final step before extinction in the wild.

The sad reality is that more than half of Victoria's native vegetation has already been lost.

With it have gone the homes of thousands of mammals, birds, lizards and insects.

We'd hate to think - and we're sure you would too - that one day you and I might have to explain to our children or grandchildren why, knowing what we know, we let so many of Victoria's unique animals and plants die out, and so much of our remarkable environment be destroyed, without doing anything about it.
