Save Our Parks

Take Action

Victoria’s national parks are precious places. But right now our national parks are at risk.

$168 million has been cut from Parks Victoria since 2014.

The Liberals cut funding, but Labor has not restored it.

Weeds and feral animals are running rampant, and biodiversity is suffering.

This Budget, Ellen Sandell MP and the Greens are calling for an immediate increase in funding to Parks Victoria.

Why is this important?

From Wilson’s Prom to the Grampians, from the Alpine National Park to the Otways, the Mallee and beyond, these places nourish our souls and protect our native animals and plants.

National Parks are some of the last havens of habitat for threatened and endangered native species.

In 2014, around $50 million a year was cut from Parks Victoria's budget by the Liberals. Labor has not restored this funding in full, meaning that since 2014, Parks Victoria is $168 million worse off than it would have been before the cuts.

This means infrastructure (like walking tracks and toilets) is run down or non-existent, many jobs for scientists and rangers have disappeared, and feral animals and weeds are running rampant. 

We need an urgent increase in funding to Parks Victoria in the the 2018 Budget. Victorians treasure our national parks, and it's time our Treasurer did too.
