Wilderness Society

Filed under Directory Listing

The Wilderness Society is a community-based environmental protection organisation. We work to safeguard our sources of clean water and air, to tackle devastating climate change, to create a safe future for life on Earth, and to give a better world to our children. The majority of our work is in Australia, with a strong focus on natural environments and the role they play in keeping our world safe.

We were born in 1976, and our first major victory was Australia’s most famous environmental campaign – saving the Franklin River. Since then, with the support of thousands of concerned people across the country, we’ve worked to protect millions of hectares of our greatest wild places.

Description of Services:

Do not be fooled into thinking that governments save the environment. Almost without exception, they will be dragged, kicking and screaming, to the right decision, by a concerned, determined community.

The Wilderness Society has a long history of encouraging and empowering the community to have a say in the future protection of Australia’s natural environment.

We undertake a range of peaceful activities to protect our wild places. These include:

  • Research
  • Raising community awareness
  • Work with the media
  • Use government processes and the legal system
  • Lobby politicians and other decision makers
  • Build alliances with like-minded organisations and industries.
