Who We Are

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

Our vision is for a Queensland in which nature thrives, wildlife is protected, our industries don’t cost the earth, and our communities are in balance with the health of the ecosystem.

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.

QCC acts 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.

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.
