ALCA submission on Developing a Biodiversity Act for South Australia

We desperately need an SA Biodiversity Act that delivers on an ambition to match the great urgency, importance, scale, and depth of the crisis facing South Australian nature.

ALCA encourages the South Australian Government to be more ambitious. Whilst addressing several important issues, the current proposal needs an aspiring legislative agenda to create the much-needed step-change in how we protect, manage, and restore South Australia’s declining biodiversity. 

Our central recommendation is to legislate the creation of an independent a statutory entity whose purpose would be to partner with willing landholders to permanently protect, manage and restore biodiversity across South Australia.
