Science suppression is widely documented as occurring throughout Australia. Suppression worsens outcomes for biodiversity and traumatises the people enduring the suppression. This form enables people working in fields related to conservation and ecology to document current cases of suppression.
The ESA will use the data in aggregate to document status and trends in cases of suppression, measure progress in reducing science suppression over time, and to identify any hot-spots of suppression. The ESA will summarise the results annually.
Using this site
This is not a whistleblowing site. The ESA will not take action on individual cases. If you are facing a case where the law is being broken and major environmental or social injustice can be verified, you might consider using established whistleblower sites like the Guardian’s or the ABC’s.
The survey material collected will be used in aggregate in outputs such as annual summaries, public presentations and publications. Written text you provide may be used in public presentations and publications. You will not be asked to provide any personal identification in this survey.
