Taking Sustainable Action To Protect Parks And Save Species

Blog Post - Taking Action To Protect Parks And Save Species

Friday, September 20, kicks off the Global Week to #ACT4SDGS. SDGs - Sustainable Development Goals - are globally agreed goals set by the United Nations General Assembly. They are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

The key SDGs affecting natural habitats and wildlife that FNPW is targeting are Life on Land, Life Below Water, Climate Action, Good Health and Well Being, Quality Education and Partnerships for the Goals. Here’s how you can #ACT4SDGS this month.

1. Become a Backyard Buddy

 Backyard Buddies is FNPW's environmental education program. Sign up to receive our bi-monthly Bmail newsletter or go to the Backyard Buddies website to find out how you can create your own piece of wilderness or help the many native species that are losing habitat every day.

2. Plant A Tree For The Planet!

Trees are one of humankind’s best friends. Trees not only provide habitat and food for plants and animals, they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, enabling us to live on this planet. FNPW 's Plant a Tree for Me! program is a practical and effective way that you can invest in the conservation of our native wildlife and natural environment. Your donation will help grow native trees to increase biodiversity and provide vital habitat to help protect our unique wildlife.

3. Sign up to be a Corporate Volunteer

 Corporate Environmental Volunteering in a National Park is a great team building experience that strengthens bonds, ignites team spirit and creates memorable experiences for employees undertaking meaningful activities that benefit our environment. To find out more, email fnpw@fnpw.org.au

 

As an organisation that sees and hears about the grass roots impact of climate related issues on our parks and wildlife, FNPW is striving to #ACT4SDGS by improving outcomes for the unique landscapes and species that are part of this country
