ABOUT

Western Australians love our natural environment. We marvel at the beauty of tiny wildflowers and vast landscapes. Our forests, rivers, beaches and woodlands; our clean water and fresh air; and our unique wildlife together form the natural heritage that supports our communities and maintains our health and wellbeing.

For over 45 years, the Conservation Council has been Western Australia’s outspoken and independent voice for the environment and communities.

As Western Australia’s peak environmental group we represent tens of thousands of individual supporters and over 100 Member Groups with diverse interests across the state.

We inspire people to work together, to value and protect nature and to build sustainable communities that can support future generations as well as our own.

We work directly with community groups, government, media, industry, and political parties.

Through advocacy, research, policy development, partnerships and community engagement, we help create a sustainable future that all Western Australians can look forward to.

From the rugged far north of the Kimberley, to the green forested South West and our amazing coastline and unique marine life, CCWA speaks for the protection and conservation of all nature in Western Australia.

From the protection of natural areas and wildlife to building sustainable communities; our work leaves an enduring legacy for future generations.
