Our environment continues to degrade at an alarming pace. Eastern Australia is among the 24 global deforestation fronts we are the only developed nation on this list. An estimated 200,000 trees are bulldozed in Australia every day. That’s 8,000 trees every hour. 

But you can help change that!  

Make the time this March whether it’s 60 seconds, 60 minutes or beyond the hour to fundraise and create a better future for people and planet. Whether you’re an individual, school, business or community, together, let’s fundraise and take #TimeOutForNature this Earth Hour.

You're part of a global movement for the planet

Every year hundreds of millions of people around the world take part in Earth Hour. For 60 minutes people in more than 7,000 cities in over 190 countries switch off their lights as a symbolic gesture of solidarity to show they care about our planet and its future. 

Earth Hour isn't just about switching off your lights. Our aim is to spark global conversations on the impacts of climate change and inspire positive action to protect our natural world.

This year, Earth Hour is at 8:30pm local time Saturday 25 March. We're inviting all Australians to raise funds for nature and join the global community of millions supporting stronger action on climate change.
