Don't know us yet?

We are Australia’s national environment organisation. We speak out, show up and act for a world where forests, rivers, people and wildlife thrive. We are proudly independent and funded by donations from our community.

5 ideas whose time has come

It’s time to champion big ideas. And common sense. Like cutting pollution and powering our lives with clean energy from sun and wind. Creating strong laws to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink and the places we love. 

5 places we love

We love the web of life right across our continent, from the Kimberley to the Murray, from the reef right down the Great Dividing Range to Tasmania’s forests. We can connect and protect our mountain ranges, ancient forests, living reefs and life-giving rivers.
