If there’s one thing that hit home in the last year, it’s that no one can know the future. But we can protect it.

A year has passed since the Andrews Government failed to meet its legal deadline to respond to expert-recommended new park refuges. 

Creating new national parks isn’t just about saving wildlife and safeguarding beautiful places – it’s about clean air and water, a liveable temperature and people’s livelihoods.

That’s why VNPA and our incredible community of nature-lovers are so determined to make sure the State Government creates 60,000 hectares of new national parks in Victoria’s central west.

Here are five things you can do to keep up the pressure and protect these natural wonders for all to enjoy, today and tomorrow.


Send an email to the Premier

Ask him to show leadership on nature conservation.

Every time we come out of lock down people flock to our state and national parks for respite and recreation. Now’s the perfect time to expand our parks estate for all Victorians.
