Who we are

Queensland Conservation Council is the leading independent voice for the environment in Queensland. 

Our vision is a healthy environment and a safe climate for all, and we will achieve this through uniting people in a powerful movement for nature and climate justice.  

QCC brings together Queenslanders who care about our natural environment and climate change. By working together we can make our voices heard and create a better future for our environment, our communities and our kids.

We act as the peak body for Queensland’s environmental movement, representing over 50 community environment groups across the state. We have been working to protect, conserve and sustain Queensland’s environment since 1969.

QCC acknowledges that we meet and work on the land of the Jagera and Turrbal. We wish to pay respect to their Elders — past, present and future — and acknowledge the important role all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people play in protecting, conserving and sustaining Queensland.

Our History

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. Fifty-one years on the Queensland Conservation Council remains Queensland's leading voice for environmental protection.
