Personalised emails are the most impactful. Use a compelling subject line, and begin by introducing yourself and why you care about these ecosystems.

You might want to include in your email:

  • Land clearing is skyrocketing across the NT savanna at an alarming rate – and razing thousands of hectares of habitat for threatened plants and wildlife with devastating impacts on savanna ecosystems.
  • Under the EPBC Act, the Environment Minister is legally required to assess all projects that are likely to harm matters of national environmental significance – which includes threatened animals and plants. She must decide whether these projects can go ahead at all, and if so, under what conditions.
  • Land clearing on pastoral leases in the NT is not being assessed, despite destroying the habitat of countless endangered animals and plants, and pushing already fragile ecosystems closer to collapse.
