ACF is Australia’s national environment organisation. We are 700,000 people who speak out for the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places and wildlife we love. We are proudly independent, non-partisan and funded by donations from our community.

Our challenge
Right now, a pollution and extinction crisis threatens our living world. Climate damage and habitat destruction are our biggest challenges. We’re living with the consequences of bad decisions, discredited ideas and short-term thinking. The big polluters. The rigged rules. The politicians who forget they represent the people. But we don’t accept the story we must sacrifice nature for a quick buck. People made this crisis and together we can solve it.

People power our campaigns, and always have.
People like the scientists who realised the consequences of limestone mining on the reef. Poets who spoke out for our forests. Builders who refused to wreck urban green spaces. Farmers who love the land. Traditional Owners who protect country from uranium mining and toxic pollution. The volunteers who make banners, write letters and run events, over decades.

Our vision
Imagine a world where water flows clean. Where everyone shares abundant energy from the sun and wind. A world where forests, rivers, people, oceans and wildlife thrive – a tomorrow even more beautiful than today. This is the world that we can see. This is the world that we’re creating.

Our community
We are 700,000 people who speak out, show up and act. We are advocates, friends, explorers and leaders from communities right across the country. With you, ACF is growing a passionate community for nature. Our community advocates against pollution and destruction, and for our living world. Together, we can match the power of big polluting companies and show our politicians that we, the people, care.

If you’ve ever asked, “What can I do to make a difference?” you’re in the right place. Join us as a member. Power our campaigns as an Earthvoice monthly donor. Take action in your community through fundraising with us. Find or start an ACF Community group.

Our community’s incredible support means ACF is proudly independent, non-partisan and funded by donations from tens of thousands of people. Our members are the heart of our democracy. Our organisation is led by a passionate leadership team of our volunteer Board and Council and our Executive. (sourced from website 29/10/2021)
