The Conservation Council of WA is the state’s foremost non-profit, non-government conservation organisation.
CCWA has been an outspoken advocate for conservation and a sustainable Western Australia for more than 50 years, working directly with the government, media, industry, community groups, and political parties to promote a more sustainable WA and to protect our natural environment.
Through advocacy, community engagement, policy development, science, and on-the-ground projects, we help create a sustainable future that all Western Australians can look forward to.
As WA’s peak environmental group we represent more than one hundred Member Groups throughout the state, as well as tens of thousands of individuals. We connect with and amplify the voice of this growing network, which covers diverse aims and interests - from promoting renewable energy to the protection of native bushland and wildlife.
CCWA works to promote a clean economy that provides opportunities without polluting the ecosystems that support us, or destroying the culture and beauty that inspires us. We work to protect our wild places and ensure that unique wildlife can thrive in their natural habitat. CCWA works with communities and individuals to build skills, empower groups, and strengthen voices at a local level. We also combine the strength of our network to tackle critical environmental challenges at a much larger scale.
From the rugged far north of the Kimberley, to the green forested South West, to our amazing coastline and unique marine life, CCWA speaks for the protection and conservation of all nature in WA.
Whether protecting icons such as Ningaloo Reef, creating new National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries, or saving old growth forests, our work leaves an enduring legacy for future generations.
