You can help make sure politicians hear our message loud and clear: rivers need real water now, before the next devastating drought.
Soon, the Australian Parliament will make a historic vote on the future of the Murray-Darling.
This new bill could be a lifeline for rivers ahead of the next drought – but only if we can secure key changes to ensure it delivers what was promised.
This next month is crucial, which is why we’re going to Canberra with river advocates from across the Basin, to meet with politicians before they vote.
Your donation today will help:
Fund South Australian river advocates to travel to Canberra, including First Nations, fishers, farmers and environmentalists (the more we raise, the stronger the contingent we can send!)
Deliver your messages directly to federal Water Minister Tanya Plibersek and key Senators, with a giant map that shows the thousands of Australians standing up for healthy rivers
Support Traditional Owners demands for water rights, and holding the federal government accountable to funding promised at the last election
Continue lobbying federal and state politicians to return as much water as possible before the next drought, and then building on this momentum next year to win the big changes we need.
These next few months are going to be crucial. As Parliament prepares to vote on this bill, and with a hot, dry summer looming, the stakes for our biggest river system have never been higher.
Thank you for standing up for our rivers when it matters most.
