Red Gum and Rivers
River Red Gum national parks along the Murray, Goulburn and Ovens rivers need regular floods to survive
These parks are home to hundreds of threatened or near threatened native plants and animals, and contain some of Australia's most important wetlands.
But without water, they are dying of thirst. The Victorian and Commonwealth Governments must urgently buy water to secure these parks for the future.

Red gum parks dying for a drink
Victoria's new River Red Gum national parks haven't seen a major natural flood since 1993, leaving the hundreds of species that rely on these forests desperate for more water.
Victoria's rivers and wetlands at risk
