A year ago we nominated a strange and remarkable bug for ‘critical habitat determination’, one of Victoria’s never-used-before nature laws.

We called on the Environment Minister to protect the Mount Donna Buang Wingless Stonefly from extinction.

The Scientific Advisory Committee has just advised the environment department to protect this rare, threatened insect and its home.

But the department have said no, cherry picking one of the threats and ignoring the rest.

Why are they leaving the stonefly to face climate disruption, fire, water pollution and visitation alone?

It’s not good enough. We have a new minister for the environment, so let’s join together and ask him to get the toolbox out and fix this mess.

Ask your minister to respect the committee’s advice and give the stonefly the protection it needs.
