Save the Murray Darling


Our environment is in crisis. We must act now to stop big corporations trashing nature and pushing animals to extinction.

By signing this, you will also hear from us about our environment campaigns from time to time.

Corporate greed and political failures are killing our country's lifeblood

The Murray-Darling Basin Plan has been a multi-billion dollar environmental disaster for our nation.

$13 billion of taxpayers' money was meant to go into saving the river. Instead, the Murray-Darling is in crisis while big corporate irrigators are lining their pockets.

The Greens are the only party that has opposed the Murray Darling Basin Plan from the outset, when it was clear that it put profit and special interests ahead of science and the environment.

The Greens instead have a plan that would:

  • Establish a national royal commission
  • Overhaul the Murray Darling Basin Plan, putting the environment at the centre 
  • Ensure that any future modelling is done in the context of climate change
  • Ban corporate irrigator donations to political parties
  • Ensure that any new plan delivers water buybacks to ensure proper environmental flows
