Community

When we work together we can create change. Community created ACF and our community powers us today. A quarter of a million people are working together to create the change we want to see.

Let’s show up, speak out and act

With you, ACF is growing a passionate community for nature. It's growing fast. We meet, act and celebrate. Together, we connect landscapes and transform how we use energy. We sow the seeds of change.

People with the desire to make a difference, united with many voices – that’s all it takes to change the world.

Together, we can match the power of big polluting companies and show our politicians that we, the people, care.

Our Organisation

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

A handful of people formed ACF 50 years ago when mining first threatened the Great Barrier Reef. Now the ACF community has grown into a powerful force for nature.

We bring together people from community, government and business. Our community advocates against pollution and destruction, and for our living world. We hold decision makers to account. We champion big ideas, and find common ground with unlikely partners.

We love and protect the web of life right across our continent, from the Kimberley to the Murray, the reef down the Great Dividing Range to Tasmania’s forests.

People power our campaigns. We are proudly independent, non-partisan and funded by donations from our community.
