Our strategic priorities are determined by our elected executive committee, in consultation with members, staff and volunteers. Our current campaign and program priorities are:
Nature laws | We are leading the campaign to retain effective controls on land clearing, a leading cause of extinction in NSW.
Coal and gas | We are playing a leading role in state wide efforts to secure protection of natural areas, water resources and local communities from destructive mining and coal seam gas development.
Forests and wildlife |We work with our members to protect forests by exposing illegal logging and promoting a transition to a sustainable plantation-based timber industry.
Marine conservation | We promote a sustainable future for our oceans by supporting marine sanctuaries, campaigning for improved protection of marine species, and for a Sydney Marine Park.
Planning and development | We campaign for a fair and sustainable planning system by providing expert policy analysis, informing and engaging the community and opposing plans to fast-track development and reduce community rights.
Climate and energy | We have mobilised tens of thousands of people to demand action on climate change, support clean renewable energy and oppose rapidly expanding coal exports.
Healthy Ecosystems |We work with farmers, traditional owners and public land managers to deliver real-world solutions to natural resource management challenges, including fire management, invasive species and habitat restoration.
