Ask Scott Morrison PM for climate action

In just over a week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison will head to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) and represent Australia's commitments to climate action.

So far, his Coalition haven't reached an agreement on a net zero emissions target nor a plan to get us there. As vets, vet nurses, animal carers and animal lovers, we need to let him know that Australians from all walks of life want our country to be part of the solution, not the problem

Australian bushfires: Estimations that 500 million animals and plants have  died

Animals across Australia are impacted by climate change, and it is our duty to protect them.

By signing this petition, you'll add your name to the millions of Australians around the country who want action on climate change.

With a federal election around the corner, Prime Minister Scott Morrison will be watching the mood of the country closely. And COP26 is the perfect opportunity to tell him what we want - climate action.

Will you sign?

Dear Prime Minister Scott Morrison,

The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report clearly shows that climate change is a key threat to all life on Earth. Australia is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

As veterinary professionals, animal carers and people who care deeply for the welfare of animals, we are concerned about the effect climate change is having on Australia's animals. Livestock, pets and wildlife are all impacted.

In order to protect the animals we are responsible for, we must take action to reduce Australia's emissions. As Prime Minister of Australia, I ask you to commit Australia to real climate action.

Ahead of COP26, I ask that you set a target and plan to reduce Australia's emissions in line with achieving no more than 1.5 degrees of global warming.

Keeping within 1.5 degrees of warming will directly result in saving the lives of animals across Australia, and the world. 

I look forward to supporting you at COP26 as you represent Australians and commit our country to climate action.

Yours faithfully,
