Victoria is home to an amazing diversity of life, landscapes and seascapes. No other area of similar size in Australia supports such a broad range of ecosystems, a range that includes the alps, forests, marine and coastal environments.
We are the custodians of a rich natural heritage, a natural heritage too precious to lose.
The threats to marine and coastal nature require comprehensive planning, protection and management solutions.
Our existing parks system is underfunded and incomplete at a time when threats in many natural places are mounting.
There are still many parts of Victoria where increased protection of natural places is required.
Victoria's urban grasslands are vanishing under a sprawling Melbourne and urgently need greater protection.
Climate change is real and its impacts on Victoria's plants and animals are already here - but it's not too late do something about it.
