How We Work

The Queensland Conservation Council Inc. (QCC) is the peak body for community environment groups in Queensland. We work together with our fellow conservationists across the state to engage organisations, communities and individuals to defend nature for current and future generations.  Since 1969 we have worked with our members, supporters and the community to protect, conserve and sustain Queensland’s unique environments. 

We achieve our goals by advocating solutions to government, engaging with the community and informing through the media. We hold governments and companies to account for keeping their environmental commitments and ensuring their activities don’t damage nature or the climate.

Our campaigns and policies are always based on the best available science. We are not associated with any political party, but we play an active part in our democratic system, encouraging all political leaders to improve their policies and performance on environmental issues.
