Join us and Unite for Nature

Nature’s central role as the keystone of our wellbeing, food security, economies and cultures is well recognised. From parliament to community, around dinner tables and board tables, at farm gates and school gates, society is taking note and taking steps to remedy the declining condition of our natural environment. Together, we are driven by our collective responsibility to stem the tide of loss and decline.


We recognise that for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, nature and culture are inextricably connected. We acknowledge and value the role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to play in managing Country today and their right to self-determination.


In response, innovative collaborations, long-standing partnerships and visionary thinking are unlocking finance, galvanising action and forging networks to amplify the ongoing, urgent management, protection and restoration of Country.


At PLC23, buoyed by a shared vision of a healthy and resilient Australia, we gather – it is a moment to stand together – as we Unite for Nature.
