Description

In 1969 a small group of people got together to share ideas. They were bushwalkers, divers, nature lovers and geologists who shared a growing concern that the things which made Queensland unique were being lost to mining, tree clearing, pollution and unsustainable development. They formed the Queensland Conservation Council to help protect, conserve and sustain the places and communities they loved.

Nearly fifty years on the Queensland Conservation Council remains Queensland's leading voice for environmental protection.

We are the representative voice for the environment groups and their supporters in Queensland.

Queensland Conservation Council is the state’s peak non-government environment group. We are a non-profit incorporated association with no political affiliations.

Our mission is to protect the environment, wildlife and landscapes, conserve our precious natural resources and make Queensland businesses and communities more sustainable.

We have a membership of almost 60 member groups who we consult and coordinate with. Our members are environment groups throughout Queensland, linked through a simple structure consisting of an elected governing council, specialised staff and dedicated volunteers.

We achieve our goals by advocating with government, engaging with the community and informing through the media. We apply the latest scientific research to develop policies. We monitor progress and rate the performance of governments, their programs, and companies, holding them accountable to their commitments to the environment.
