For over 65 years the Nature Conservation Council has been the voice for nature in NSW. We advocate and campaign to protect nature and for a safe climate.
Koalas are forecast to go extinct by 2050 if no action is taken to protect the species. Habitat is being destroyed by logging, development and mining. We work along the coast to protect koala habitat and save this iconic Australian species.
Healthy rivers and wetlands are essential for native wildlife, Aboriginal cultural heritage, local communities, and a diverse range of industries, from floodplain grazing to tourism and recreational fishing. We work with local communities to advocate for the restoration of natural flows to our rivers and wetlands.
Climate change is here now and Australia must react quickly. NSW must do our part and phase out coal and other fossil fuels and switch to clean energy. Our work on the Renewables Roadmap paves the way for policies that reduce emissions from all sectors.
