Once every five years we get a reality check about how South Australia's environment is tracking through the State of the Environment Report.
The latest edition was released in November 2018.
In some areas – like renewable energy, or recycling – we are doing well.
That’s something we can all be incredibly proud of.
But two areas stand out, and if we don’t address them soon, they will devastate our way of life: climate change and biodiversity loss.
The worst thing that can happen is that the State of the Environment report gets buried.
It's vital our politicians hear from as many South Australians as possible how important our environment is to us.
We must encourage them to act.
You can get involved by:
- Contacting your MP (we've made it easy! Click here)
- Sharing the message on Facebook or Twitter
- Supporting our SOE Appeal to help us mobilise other South Australians to stand up for our environment
We've created a snapshot of the report's key findings below, but you can read the EPA's comprehensive summary here
